I bought a PC several years ago - Acer Aspire T3-710 Desktop PC. It has an NVIDIA GeForce GT 730 graphics card. The CPU is an Intel Core i5-6400 2.7GHz. It has 8GB DDR3 expandable to 16GB. Power supply is 220 watts.

I only play WoW TBC Classic and get between 20-30 fps on lowest settings in a raiding environment which really isn't great. I would like to improve that (while also spending the least amount of money).

My questions is: What graphics card do i buy to improve fps?

Thanks in advance for any feedback.

The only viable card you can upgrade to is a GTX 1050 that doesn't require additional PCIe power. And even then, I'm not comfortable throwing a 75W card on this system.

Otherwise you have to upgrade the power supply first.
what other graphics cards could i upgrade to if i were to upgrade the power supply as well?

Do you run 1080p, as a test can you drop the resolution and let us know if the FPS goes up. It may not be the gpu holding you back.
Yeah if i drop down to 900p i go up around 10 fps and then if i drop down further to 720p my fps goes up another 10fps.
