    Most likely it will work but it will be close, I do recommend a better PSU. If your power supply is less than 250w you are risking damaging your graphics card or other components.
    The recommended power supply requirements for the GTX 1050 is 300w.

  2. The motherboard uses a pcie x16 slot, same as any other motherboard made in the last 15 years or so, so Yes, the motherboard is compatible with that gpu.
    Better questions would be : Can your psu support the 75w draw of the card, and can the card physically fit inside the case. There are several different versions of the 3020, including a small form factor (SFX) version, that might require a slightly different card than what you want.

  3. But the GTX 10xx series need the UEFi bios right?

  4. No GTX 9xx or later (so also GTX 10) still supports a legacy vbios. For all these cards only UEFI/GOP vbios are available. There are only very few situations where a legacy vbios is really required though. That only covers boards using a UEFI bios (!) that is not GOP compliant. For boards with a legacy bios it is irrelevant if a UEFI/GOP or legacy vbios is used. The UEFI vbios is always hybrid and can also work in legacy mode. Therefor a legacy bios can access it. An older UEFI bios would try to access it in UEFI mode and fail because of missing GOP compliance. However there are more things that will be relevant for compatibility. In most cases UEFI or legacy is not the main factor but general bios support of later generation hardware. With old oem mainboards that is in most cases the main problem. That is also the reason why a GTX 1050ti most likely won't work on an old HP main board for instance. You may or may not need to upgrade your particular bios, but that board is new enough it should already be compliant.
