I was looking to buy a gtx 1050ti but was not sure if my 240w psu could power it plus an i7 2600k.

I don't trust the rating to be accurate, so no

Definitely not. NVIDIA says 300W minimum for the 1050Ti, but combined with that CPU, I would recommend probably 400W, for some breathing room. We can help you find a good PSU if you need.

R.I.P. Asus X99-A motherboard, April 2016 - October 2018, may you rest in peace. 5820K, if I ever buy you a new board, it'll be a good one.

nope nope nope

 

You should be able to find a good price for a power supply on Cyber Monday.  B&H has some EVGA power supplies right now at an excellent price.  I just purchased one myself a few minutes ago actually.  :)

Going with cheap PSU's just puts your entire system at risk of "explosion".

it's worth putting a couple dollars into a decent one rather than replacing everything later

1) tell us what System you are talking about. 
2) giving the Power, I'd say we are talking about some Small Form Factorish unit like this one:

3) do you even have +5V and +3,3V in the PSU?? Or does that come from the Motherboard?

4) if so, then yes the PSU should be more than plenty...

We ain't talking 'bout "Cheap PSU", we're talking about OEM PSU in a smallish System from a big manufacturer like DELL, HP or something like that.

 

And the 1050ti might even have to be a Low Profile one...

OEM's use the cheapest and lowest possible quality that they can to get the highest profits. Not that it can't handle the system they're putting it in, but nothing over what it was made for.

That's bullshit.They tend to use rather decent units and often times they are better than the lower end stuff YOU can buy...

 

Proof:

What you are talking about is the random PC Store around the corner and some other evil System Integrator that use the worst garbage they can get.

But the Likes of DELL and co usually use some decent quality units because they don't want high RMA and they loose money if the PSU randomly explodes.

The Around the Corner guy doesn't care as he can send it to the manufacturers. Dell can not.
