You are looking at the RX 550 or the GT 1030 then. Check your PSU wattage. The GT only wants 300w while the RX wants 400w, a lot of prebuilt PCs have really weak PSUs so it's important to check what you have before you buy.

The PSU is 240w.

1366 x 768.
But I plan on getting a better monitor.

I probably wouldn't go beyond the GT 1030 then. The RX 550 would likely not power on or would suffer random system crashes when it gets pushed to hard and demands more power than the PSU can supply it.

You'll want a newer platform, save up for something like this as its much better then your current CPU.

Another option would be to find a used i3/i5 Intel Haswell with motherboard and reuse your current DDR3 RAM.
