Will my Gigabyte F2A68HM-HD2 motherboard accept GTX 1050 Ti ?

Hello saviours from my stupidity and doom, i would like to ask a question.

I'm upgrading my pc with new GPU and just to make sure i wont screw up or waste money for nothing, i wanted to double check with you guys. Will Gigabyte Nvidia GTX 1050Ti 4GB run on my motherboard ( Gigabyte F2A68HM-HD2 with FM2+ socket ) ? All PC parts are only few months old.

Right now running on:
MOBO: Gigabyte F2A68HM-HD2 FM2+ socket
GPU: Gigabyte GT730 2GB
CPU: AMD Athlon X4 840 Quad Core 3.1GHz
PSU: Corsair VS450
RAM: 1x2GB 1x8GB DDR3 (i know strange stuff with Ram's, will buy another 8GB)
OS: Win 7 Pro

My main concern is about PCI slotting and GDDR version between motherboard and GPU, will it work at full power when required and will my motherboard allow it to do that? I read on main Gigabyte web about PCI-E slots i THINK it will run but i need confirmation from person with knowledge to help me out a bit, but i didint find anything about GDDR version acceptability between GPU and MOBO, so thats where my concern starts.

Link to GPU (Amazon, you might see different price because its UK version site) :

P.S. if any other information needed i.e.: full specifications of my gpu which i use right now or anything else, let me know.

  1. It will work. GDDR5 is the technology of the GPU itself, has nothing to do with the motherboard

    vram has nothing to do with system ram
    all that matters is the pcie slot

    and yes a gtx 1050 ti is compatible with what you have


    remove the 2gb stick, run the 8gb alone until you get the other 8gb

    Removing the stick will be to no avail, if not the 2gb is slower than the 8gb.
