Hello I'm planning to ugrade my GPU from a GT610 to a GTX1050ti (no 6-pin), is it okay to pair the GPU with a generic fortress 700w PSU? Will my parts fry?

The 1050 ti/1650 is usually the best you can put with a crappy PSU, no matter how crappy.

 

700 watt PSU with no PCIe cables is pretty scary no matter what, so upgrade GPU at your own risk.

I WILL find your ITX build thread, and I WILL recommend the SIlverstone Sugo SG13B

 

Primary PC:

i7 8086k (won) - EVGA Z370 Classified K - G.Skill Trident Z RGB - WD SN750 - Jedi Order Titan Xp - Hyper 212 Black (with RGB Riing flair) - EVGA G2 650W - dual booting Windows 10 and Linux - Black and green theme, Razer brainwashed me.

Draws 400 watts under max load, for reference.

 

Linux Proliant ML150 G6:

Dual Xeon X5560 - 24GB ECC DDR3 - GTX 750 TI - old Seagate 1.5TB HDD - dark mode Ubuntu (and Win7, cuz why not)

 

How many watts do I need? Seasonic Focus threadUserbenchmark (Et al.) is trash explained, PSU misconceptions, protections explainedgroup reg is bad

I would replace it.

It lists -5v rail which was removed from the ATX specifications more than 15 years ago, so it's likely a very old power supply. Only capable of supplying 300w on 12v rail if the label is to be trusted. Definitely not a 700w PSU.
