looking for a new motherboard, any suggestions?

I just got a new graphics card (geforce gtx 1050 ti) and have installed it but I've been having a lot of problems with it after a couple of weeks i find that my motherboard isn't compatible, anyway I was wondering if anyone knew of any motherboards that are compatible with my rig. I intended to spend about £80 on the motherboard but considering i know next to nothing about them I'll settle for higher.(preferable a board that has room for upgrades if need be)

My specs are as follows:

monitor : Acer KA240HQ
graphics card : gigabyte geforce gtx 1050 Ti
motherboard : NVIDIA GeForce 7025/ NVIDIA nForce 630a
processor : AMD FX(tm)-4100 Quad-core Processor
hard drive : ST1000DX 001=1NS162 SCSI disk device

Thanks.

More about motherboard suggestions
  1. That's not a motherboard name, it's the onboard GPU that's on a specific mobo.

    The only mobo I can find that supports the FX4100 and has those specs would be the ASRock N68C-GS
    http://www.asrock.com/mb/NVIDIA/N68C-GS%20FX/

    Is that your motherboard?


    What problems, specifically, are you having? I don't see any reason that board wouldn't support a 1050TI adequately.


    It's really not worth investing a lot of money into that setup, in all honesty.

    I'd focus on how we can get your GPU running properly - but we'll need to know the issues you're facing.

    I'm such an idiot, i don't think that's my motherboard i can't find the name of the board anywhere.

    As for the graphics card issues several games i could play before can't be run now and the games that do work run at one frame per second no matter how much I lower my settings.

  3. Did you fully remove any prior GPU drivers and clean install the drivers for the 1050TI?

    If not, run DDU in safemode: http://www.guru3d.com/files-details/display-driver-uninstaller-download.html

    Then, once removed/rebooted, download/install the 1050TI drivers from here: https://www.geforce.com/drivers

  5. Are you connected to the GPU, and not to the onboard graphics?

    The onboard graphics have been turned off via BIOS

  7. Are you physically connected to the GPU? HDMI, DP etc...

    I have a VGA cable from my built in GPU to my monitor and an HDMI from my graphics card to my monitor, but if I don't have the VGA cable connected to the built in GPU the I get a visual on the monitor

  9. Do not connect to the onboard graphics at all - only the GPU.

    Once your connected only to the GPU (via HDMI, as a 1050TI does not support VGA natively), then you'll be able to install the nVidia drivers .

    I won't be able to install a driver if there is no output to the monitor, and without the VGA I don't get an output.

    You said you do get display without VGA attached?

    You may have to manually set your monitor to the HDMI input.

    Is that done in the BIOS?
