So I just got a new gtx 1050 ti, and after I did everything, placed it in, installed latest drivers, I noticed my pc is slower. Even moving a window around with my mouse it's a bit laggy. Btw I'm a real newbie when it comes to pc building. I was thinking maybe it was because of my psu which has 250W max and wondering maybe that's why, but I don't wanna buy a new one just to be wrong.

Memory: 8GB RAM
Available OS Memory: 7128MB RAM

The 1050ti only draws 75w max so you should be ok with power. Use gpuz and make sure it is running at gen3 . Also check bios and make sure your pci slot 16 is gen3 enabled.

Your cpu has a gpu on it. Make sure the AMD gpu is disabled and your Nvidia Gpu is enabled along with Nvidia drivers installed for the Nvidia card. Also enable high performance in advanced power settings in Win.
