Hello there, I have the Dell inspiron 3847 Desktop with the i7 processor running windows 10 and the built in Intel hd Family GPU. I have never changed anything about this computer before and I am trying to upgrade the GPU and wondering if their is any GPU under 60 dollars that will make it work good for gaming. Thank you!

I have the I7-4790 CPU @ 3.60GHz
Im really looking for a GPU to make games like Skyrim a little lighter on my computer for a little higher FPS.

The original skyrim or the "remastered" edition? The original one should play fine with your iGPU, save at least $130-140 to get a decent graphics card, anything lower than that is not really worth it for gaming.
 
New cards suitable for gaming start at around the $100 price point. That's for a very basic entry level gaming card. Cards under $100 are suitable for people who lack integrated graphics and need a videocard but don't need a gaming card.

On the used market you might find good choices for around $60. However, be mindful of the fact that older cards usually use more power, so you need to be sure of what power supply you have and its capabilities.
