Probably the cheapest possible pc you could get with a 1050ti So there is a massive argument on the internet as to whether a 1050ti works inside a pc like this, sporting a 240w 80+ gold psu. Some people say the power supply can't give enough juice to all the components. Well i tried it. And it worked
The pc is refurbished ( I didn't want to have the risk of buying second hand from private seller. Plus I got some warranty on the pc. So that's good)
Now I bought this in Australia for $210 AUD which is roughly $168 USD at the time of making this build. I also bought a low profile msi gtx 1050ti which was around the same price. You can definitely get the pc cheaper if your willing to buy second hand.
This Hp small form factor 8200 uses: I5 2400 4x2 gb ddr3 1333mhz ram 500gb seagate HDD
The pc came with a windows 7 sticker so I was able to use the key to upgrade to windows 10 pro for free.
So now I can garuntee everyone that this configuration works. And the power supply does not limit/restrict performance at all.
The i5 2400 very rarely bottlenecks the 1050ti and allows this card to perform to its full potential. In unigine superposition benchmark on 1080p medium settings I averaged 46 fps
Temps were also very good 28 Celsius at idle and 68 on full load I do suggest if you want to replicate this build you buy the msi variant of the low profile gpu because the gigabyte variant only has 1 fan.
