I don't know squat about computer hardware and for some reason have a really hard time understanding it. I currently have an NVIDIA GeForce GT 720 graphics card and plan to upgrade it.

I think I'm going to go with the NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1050, since it costs about as much as I can afford, and is cheaper than any under it. (From my research)
I found it for about $110.

I know that when upgrading graphics cards there's requirements I need to verify. (RAM, power supply, etc.)
I've been researching alot so that I'll know what to do when purchasing and installing it, but I keep running into questions and what-not.

If I go with the NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1050, what all will I need to check for requirements? I always get different answers on google.

Also, I don't know how to check stuff like my power supply's wattage, for example. Not to mention I don't even know how to determine if it's compatible with my desktop. I don't know things like how to check my motherboard to see what size graphics card it accepts and all that other stuff.

Any answers are highly appreciated. Anyone willing to give me detailed help (more detailed) can PM me with your skype or something.
       I'd offer to pay for the help but all my money is going to this upgrade.


*NOTE* - I do apologize for all the questions, as they can be answered on google. I just hate getting different info from different sites.

Don't count me on it, but for a budget under $150, I think this should get you to a decent level.

GTX 1050 TI

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.as...-_-Product

Pretty much one of the best bang for your buck cards next to the GTX 1060, however the 1060 is about $50 more, its well worth the cash.

Swift is a pretty kewl individual. 

Right now I can't feel my heart.

He made me put this for one credit.
