    Those component are fine for gaming at 1080p with all modern games at medium to high settings. For the CPU, it depends what socket your motherboard has.

    I would assume so, but we can't confirm if you don't AT LEAST tell us what your motherboard specifications are

    If your PC is prebuilt or store bought, we need a model number or model name. However, if you're building it yourself, we need specs. If you're sure about compatibility, The 1050ti can max out a lot of 1080p games. Also, RAM should not be your main focus, and you should reinvest that money into an even better GPU. If you already have 4gb or more RAM you should be fine.

    I wouldn't get a 1050ti. With the recent price drop that AMD annouced, for $20 more you can have a 4GB 470, which is a much faster card in most cases.

    Run Speccy: https://www.piriform.com/speccy : and tell us what your motherboard is. Without knowing that, we have no way of knowing what type of RAM you need

    How old is your Mother? It depends... it couldn't handle such amazing and ultra power if your Mother is old.
    I'm talking about your Mother Board :rolleyes:

    If it's really old it probably doesn't have a good enough CPU to run modern games. It also probably doesn't have a mother board compatible with that ddr3 ram or that video card. I'm guessing your powerserving unit probably also wouldn't have enough juice to power the video card.

    You're going to have to buy a case, cpu, psu and motherboard (the hdd in your old setup will probably be fine) - and build a new computer.

    This might not all be true, but you're going to have to give us specifics on your motherboard, psu and cpu.
