What do you want to do with your PC? If you're gaming, the 1050 may end up bottlenecking your CPU. If you aren't then depending on what you want to do, you might want to look for something else that is a little less.

Thanks for the reply. excuse my ignorance I am a pensioner and not exceedingly tech savvy although certainly not stupid. What does bottlenecking the CPU mean?.

Because you have an older CPU games won't run as fast as they could. Basically, the CPU would be holding back the GPU

I play Elite Dangerous at present and although the Radeon HD 5750 hits 99% and 75 degrees the CPU has never gone over 41degrees. Even if I got the same performance as I have at present would be ideal, would that work?.

Yes it will work, and will still have better performance than the 5750. But as Cpt_Chiken and Planemaster2 advised, you can get more out of the GTX 1050 if it is run under a new system with better CPU performance. Kind of like putting a a huge transmission on a small block engine. 

Great game choice, and if you are happy with performance, it's perfectly fine to hold off on upgrading the motherboard, CPU, and likely the memory.

You're hitting minimum requirements, so if you do ever upgrade, you should be able to experience a highly increased level of performance with higher FPS on good resolution.

But to simply answer your question, yes the GTX 1050 is compatible and can be installed on that motherboard.
