Hi we have posted on another PCPP forum by mistake but were recommended to post here. We are building a PC up to $1000. Wondering if you think what we have will work. Some advice so far has been that the GPU is not sufficient for gaming, schoolwork, possible app development in the future.

Well, the GPU is sufficient, but if you want better performance at 1080P then it is definitely not the way to go.

Thank you. Any idea why the PSU Corsair CX Series 750 watt 80+ Bronze Certified seems incompatible with nearly every GPU we try over 4GB?

It shouldn't be. This is a High End 8gb Nvidia GPU, with no compatibility Problems.

I would get a rx 580 instead, it costs the same and performs alot better than a 1050ti. Trust me my current pc has a 1050 ti and it is definitly a better deal to get the rx 580 instead. https://pcpartpicker.com/product/KQQRsY/gigabyte-radeon-rx-580-8gb-gaming-8g-video-card-gv-rx580gaming-8gd Also your power supply is definitely overkill but it does leave lots of breathing room for future upgrading.

Thank you very much for your advice. Unfortunately we have tried the rx 580 but keep getting this message on PCPP - Warning!Corsair - 750 W 80+ Bronze Certified ATX Power Supply and Asus - Radeon RX 580 8 GB STRIX Video Card are not compatible.

Sorry for having little idea, but are you saying we don't need the PSU?

I'm saying that you won't need a psu with that much wattage a 550watt should perfect for a build like this. I'm not sure why the psu wouldn't be compatible with the rx 580 I would google about why that's happening because I'm not experienced enough to know the answer for that question.
