You could... but a gt 1030 isn’t quite the best card. Compatibility, sure...i guess. But the gt 1030’s ability to render graphics is still somewhat worse than a gtx 1050

Your PSU is 220w. You may have no issues running a gt1030, but with a 1050, you may be very tight. If it's just for light gaming, then the 1030 is the option.
GTX1050 = 75w max, plus system components (maybe 100-120w) depending. So it's a fine margin.

a gt 1030 should be ok if you only play esport titles or play AAA titles on low. A gt 1030 is compatible with almost every pc which can deliver at least 30W through the pcI slot.

The 1030 is your best bet. Try to get one with a fan if you can, and you plan to run games. Every bit of cooling helps. You can always run your game at 720 if the 1030 struggles at 1080p.
