    what is the rest of your system spec? Especially the PSU. Don't want to recommend something your current build won't handle without further purchases.

    Other than that, with your price point, you may be able to find a deal on a 1050 ti. GPU prices are starting to come back down again, so keep a look out on one for sale and you might see them at the $150 range.

    We still need to know what the exact model of power supply you have.

    The power supply is what delivers power to your computer. Similar to this one. You'll need to open the side of your case and look to see if there is a model number listed on it. Is it a store bought pc or custom built one?

    As I said, you'll need to open the case and look for a model number or have someone that knows about computers physically help you. Without knowing what power supply you have, we can't possibly recommend what video card to get.

    For a brand new card look for 1050ti's. If you aren't scared of trying a second hand card you may be able to snatch a RX 480, RX 580, or GTX 1060 on Ebay or something.

    The 1050ti is also pretty easy to install, just pop it in, no power connectors or nothing.
