So i have a prebuilt hp 6300 small form factor that has a gt 1030 installed in it, i want to upgrade the gpu to a gtx 1050ti low profile but i found this one guy thats telling me that the pcie slot in my pc provides only 25 watts of power and if i install a gtx 1050ti in my pc i will get a blank screen. is this true? this is the pc https://support.hp.com/gb-en/document/c03387773 im making this thread because ive seen videos on youtube telling people to buy low profile cards since they ask for no extra power and only use power from pcie slot but im being told that my pcie slot cant deliver enough power. i googled how much power a pcie slot can provide and it said 75watts so im confused.

@DarkRaiden112 I'm sure the motherboard will be capable of delivering up to 75 watts of power to the gpu which should be enough to power the 1030. I havent heard of a Pcie 3.0 slot that has only 25 watts output.
