GTX 1050 Ti ( Zotac ) Questions

GTX 1050 Ti ( Zotac )

I am currently buying a more suitable upgrade from my basically "Usable but Useless" Intel Celeron ( Wolfdale ) 2.4 Dual Core Ghz CPU and Intel G41 graphics card.

Going back to one of my earlier threads where LowlySkeleton gave me two solutions which can improve my gaming experience for a affordable but very tight budget of £250-300 on

I chose the second option but decided to upgrade the graphics card to the GTX 1050 Ti OC Edition and buy Arctic-MX-4 Thermal Paste along with another stick of 4GB Ram that may be underclocked by the CPU But I don't mind. Maybe there is another option for ddr3 4GB Ram that is fully compatible which i have not yet seen, if you guys could find that, it would be amazing. ( This setup can be found here at )

Enough explanation, now for the questions.

Q1 : Does this graphics card draw all power from the motherboard or from an external source? ( Cables. I don't know the name, PCLI or something like that, sorry. )

Q2 : Using PrecisionXOC Software from EVGA, how much can I estimate to get on the overclocks? ( Memory Clock & Core Clock )

    And, no, the zotac card doesn't need an extra 6 pin

    Edit: I took the paste off, you don't need it. Almost all CPUs come with a cooler that has paste already applied
