    EDIT:

    Had to edit my response.

    I agree with MS_User.

    Recommended PSU for a GTX 1050 is 300 watts.

    Your CPU has 77w TDP.

    Your total wattage with drives should be under 200w.

    I think you will be fine.

    GPU specs are really based on what your budget can afford.

    Just look on YT for 1050 benchmarks.

    All of the NVidia 10-series cards are decent performers.

    It sucks next to a 1080 ti, but few of us can afford that.

    So it's really dictated by your budget.

    I don't know the limitations of your CPU so I can't speak on bottlenecks.

    I never heard of Palit before today.

    Just uninstall the drivers and shut down your pc, remove the power cord and ground your self before getting into the case. Pop in the new gpu and when you reboot Windows will natively install drivers. You can then install the latest nVidia drivers you downloaded from nVidia and they will replace the native drivers that was installed when you booted up

    1.--If you use Windows Update, disconnect from internet.

    2.--Uninstall any programs (NOT DRIVERS) with dedicated uninstall program (there are several)...instead of Windows uninstaller. This will remove extra registry entries.

    3.--Then run CCleaner (Use registry fixer to remove remnants in registry.)

    4.--Go to Device Manager to remove drivers. First, right-click on device and "disable" drivers. Then, right-click on device and UNINSTALL DRIVERS.

    Re-boot.

    Well you have to have something to run the gpu because without any kind of driver, you would not be able to see anything at all.
    Windows will auto-install a native driver anytime you remove the gpu driver. It is expected. Just shut down, install the new card and when you install the new drivers they will replace any windows drivers it is currently using

    I said I had never heard of Palit.

    I noticed they were a vendor at Computex...so they do seem like a big player.

    Most people know the daughter of Palit, it's Gainward.
    Sometimes the smaller daughter is more popular than the mother (for instance Crucial / Micron).

    @Fly3

    To change the GPU just remove the driver and uninstall the device at the device manager and shut down PC.
    Then do the physical exchange
    Boot up windows and wait until defaults have been installed.
    Run latest Nvidia driver exe and choose custom. THERE select / tick 'perform a clean installation'.

    (This even works when you just exchange the GPU without to do anything before since the OS recognizes the change and switches to compatible mode.)

    Important is that you choose 'perform a clean installation' at Nvidia setup!
