I currently have an NVIDIA Quadro K4000 in my desktop and I'm trying to play some games like Assassin’s Creed Origins and Mortal Kombat 11. I've been told that those games require a better card than I have, but I'm not sure if that is true. Do I need a new card? If so can someone recomend a card that will not kill my wallet? I don't care if it's AMD or NVIDIA.

So what happens when you play those games, do they run slow? Have you played around with quality options? If yes and they still run slow then what you were told is true. Both the video card and CPU you have are 7-8 years old, which is pretty old in computer time. You may want to look at a used nVidia 970 card for that system, make sure you check for a newer BIOS for the motherboard. If you want a new card, 1650 Super is a good card for 1080 gaming.

You'll most likely want a new CPU, MOBO and GPU if you are trying to game. Your current set up is essentially an office work station.
That's literally a whole computer. LOL!

It lags a little bit. I can't run anything on high settings.

If it's assassin's creed origins you want to play I'd go with Nvidia. I played through that game (excellent) with my old vega 56 with bios flash 64 and it wasn't very good
