Respectable
It's fine, depending on what games you are looking to play. GPUs are currently very pricey, so I'm expecting that the GPU is worth almost the same if not more than the rest of your computer combined.

If you can find, say a used GTX 970 for the same amount of money or less, I'd go for that. It performs better. The GTX 1050TI isn't that good a card. Though, in comparison to the rest of your system, it'll be pretty good.

It is OK, sure. It is not a fast card however. Current chip shortages have pushed the old 1050Ti up to the price of a 2070Ti. But you will still be getting 1050Ti performance, despite the higher price.

You could not have picked a worse time to upgrade your GPU.

Please also be on the lookout for counterfeit cards - Those part numbers are commonly faked, via BIOS reflash.

Interesting times...
 
I see one potential issue.
Your motherboard is so old that it does not have a UEFI bios.

Modern graphics cards like the GTX1050ti need a UEFI bios to be recognized.
Some GTX1050ti cards will have the ability to recognize legacy motherboards, but others may not.
I have no idea if the particular card you selected has that capability.
There may be a bios update for your motherboard to enable it to detect a uefi card.
Give it a try if you can return the card.
The GTX1050ti is a great card.

Cards up to the 700 generation Like a GTX750ti will run.
