Yes, your PSU can power the 75w GTX 1650, but...

Bottleneck screengrabs are from PC Builds.  It would take a better PC with a better CPU to run the GTX 1650 without bottleneck.  This doesn't mean that there aren't people that have run it, possibly unaware of bottleneck.

I linked a couple of videos to show 240w and above PSU's can power 75w GPU cards.  In case somebody says it doesn't work...

HI @rlalbario,

It's not said what form factor/size your 3010 is - MT, DT, or SFF?

The GTX 1050 ti looks like a good fit to go with your CPU.  If you have a DT or SFF, then you'd need the low profile version.

Capture+_2020-09-15-20-09-46.pngFor YouTube videos, I wanted to go with the smallest example, SFF with 240w PSU.  Hardly anything for 3010, so I used 7010, also a 240w PSU in an SFF.
