    I would NOT recommend getting a 10xx card. You have a legacy bios and the 10xx series need a uefi type bios. Sometimes these cards can be made to work with a bios update however that is a BIG if

    The GT1030 recommends a 300watt PS, the GTX 750TI recommends at least a 400 watt supply. Read where One guy put a MSI brand GTX750TI in his Asrock g41m-vs3 and it did not work. He Tried it in a Gigabyte 775 board and it did work. Sounds like it depends on the motherboard BIOS. Read the ZOTAC GTX750TI may work with legacy Bios.

    You are not installing any video card with a 240W pw supply. First thing you need to do is install a quality pw supply.
    The newest card I would attempt to install would be 7xx series and that is ONLY after a pw supply is installed.
