Question So I have a $100 budget(tight budget I know). I'm playing on Mac and I really wanna increase my frames. What kind of GPUs should I get?

I'm ok with going a little bit over my budget but not too much. I found this GPU within my budget on Amazon: MSI Gaming GeForce GT 710 2GB GDRR3 64-bit HDCP Support DirectX 12 OpenGL 4.5 Single Fan Low Profile Graphics Card (GT 710 2GD3 LP) and Gigabyte GV-N1030OC-2GI Nvidia GeForce GT 1030 OC 2G Graphics Card. I was wondering if they would increase my frames. Here is my hardware: CPU: https://ark.intel.com/content/www/us/en/ark/products/84990/intel-core-i5-5350u-processor-3m-cache-up-to-2-90-ghz.html GPU:Intel HD Graphics 6000: Chipset Model: Intel HD Graphics 6000 Type: GPU Bus: Built-In VRAM (Dynamic, Max): 1536 MB Vendor: Intel Device ID: 0x1626 Revision ID: 0x0009 Metal: Supported, feature set macOS GPUFamily1 v4

I'm guessing that's a MacBook Air from the CPU (that's why it's important to always give the exact information about your PC, so we don't have to play Twenty Questions every time). If this is the case, you cannot add any GPU. Your only option is a PCIE enclosure to use Thunderbolt and to use a $100 GPU, you're going to need a $300-$400 budget.
 
A 710 GT run for something like $35 are out of the US?

2017 Mac Book Air's use that CPU and it has Thunderbolt 2.

You would need the following.

USB-C to Thunderbolt adaptor. $49 and up "Prefer to us Apples since it works without a question"

eGPU enclosure and GPU $150 " $99 for the cheapest Enclosure"

So basically you're looking to spend around $200 for something that works and $350+ for something that works well.
