I have a pc which is getting old, and I was considering buying a new graphics card for it, and later maybe build a completely new pc. Would it be possible or wise to get a new graphics card into my current pc and later putting it into a new one? Current CPU: AMD Athlon II X3 455, GPU: AMD Mobility Radeon HD 5570, 8 GB RAM and Windows 10 Pro.

buying only gpu would be a very bad option.

you can try getting ryzen 2600 for 120$ or 1200 for 60$
some motherboard for 50$

and used gpu maybe gtx 760 or r9 280x for 50$
of r9 290(x) for 80-90$ or so

it would be 160$ for the cheapest build but my recommended is
ryzen 2600 and r9 290x and some motherboard for 50 for total of 250$ whitch is 225 eur
and keep in mind that r9 290x is not that much behind gtx 1060 and WAY better than 1050ti


and with this rig you can 100% play any game atleast medium at 1080p

Your options are going to be limited with the old tech. Many modern GPUs require a UEFI based motherboard.

Also, that old CPU is going to severely limit the performance of a modern GPU.

What is the exact model number of your motherboard? Also, what is your GPU budget?

You should consider a full-blown system update.

Motherboard is Gigabyte GA-970A-D3 and I was hoping to stay in the range of one to two hundred euros.
Also thanks for the quick reply!

In all honesty I don’t think that it’s smart to upgrade your graphics card
First Off AMD athlon isn’t so powerful so getting a gpu now today would be bottleneck as your cpu wouldn’t be able to utilize all the frames that the gpu would be giving I suggest that you get a new PC and hopefully you are able to sell that rig
