Hi community! I am looking to upgrade my current PC but I'm afraid to buy GPU that won't work for some reason. So I'd like to get some advice of wich GPU will be better for my system.

APPROXIMATE PURCHASE DATE: this month.
BUDGET RANGE: 200 USD = 3500 ARS, I might be able to spend a few 10/20 bucks if it's needed.

USAGE FROM MOST TO LEAST IMPORTANT: Gaming, FPS games (Paladins mainly, Overwatch). I don't mind to play on medium settings as long as I get decent FPS.

CURRENT GPU AND POWER SUPPLY: AMD Radeon R7 Series (Kaveri) (wich i think is the integrated GPU) and a Kelyx lbuf-atx 500w power supply that came with the case.

OTHER RELEVANT SYSTEM SPECS:
CPU: QuadCore AMD A10-7850K, 3900 MHz (39 x 100)
RAM: 8 GB DDR3
Motherboard: Asus A68HM-K
I made a hardware related Report with Aida64, that you can check here in case I have missed something. ;)

PREFERRED WEBSITE(S) FOR PARTS: I am from Argentina so as far as i know, we don't have good websites to buy hardware. I have looked in the pages that are adviced in this thread but most of them aren't from my city. So I have looked in this page : mercadolibre.com.ar wich I think it has some decent prices.

PARTS PREFERENCES:
The only thing I care about is to prevent compatibility issues, excluding that, what makes better value for my money should be good.

OVERCLOCKING: No SLI OR CROSSFIRE:No

MONITOR RESOLUTION: Current 1366 x 768 and I will buy along with the GPU a new Full HD - 1920x 1080p monitor. My idea is to have a dual-monitor setup.

ADDITIONAL COMMENTS: I am not sure if after the update my current CPU will be able to handle the new GPU or if it will make some bottlenecking problems. Also I do not know if my 500w power supply will be enough

This is my first post so if I have missed something please let me know and I'll try to fix it.

your setup maxes out at a gtx 1050 ti


you are not going to be playing on two screens

using the other screen for windows tasks should be fine
