Hey tech experts,
I am looking to upgrade my graphic card but don't have much budget. Around 200 EUR (250 USD).
Maybe a bit more. Is there any good option to upgrade my ASUS GT1030-SL-2G-BRK? 144hz output is desireable.

PC specs:
  • NOX URANO VX 650W 80+ Bronze
  • AMD Ryzen 3 3200G AM4
  • MSI A320M-A PRO MAX Socket AM4
  • 2 X CORSAIR Vengeance LPX 8GB DDR4 3200Mhz

Thanks!

Look for something around GTX970 / 1060 pricing (preferably 4GB VRAM and up for 2021) for around that price point, might even be able to squeeze a 1650S if you're lucky.

Honestly, the problem you'll run into is that GPUs that are significant upgrades on the GT 1030 will also use more power, something I'd be wary of with a cheaply made group-regulated PSU of ancient design. Because of this company's tendency to swap out review units sent out with cheaper ones for retail, they've long been on the Do Not Buy tier of our curated PSU list.

I'd wait until prices have settled down more and both get a GPU that's an upgrade and the proper equipment to safely run it long-term.
