I have Asus H61M-CS (Motherboard) also a Core i5 2400 (Processor) and I am willing to buy a GTX 1050 TI 4GB which is a PCIe 3.0 card and my motherboard's PCIe slot says "PCIe 3.0 speed is supported by Intel® 3rd generation Core™ processors". And I have a Core i5 2400 (2nd gen)... So will GTX 1050TI 4GB support my Asus H61M-CS?

Thank you for your time!

Not unless you are using an RTX 2080 Ti. Even GTX 1080 Ti and RTX 2080 give about a 1% performance loss with PCIe 2.0. Any less GPU will not notice any difference.
