I am looking to update my pc with a decent video card to give to my son. He would use this pc for gaming but i am not looking for something to crazy. any on have a good recommendation on a decent video card? I current have a PCI Express 2.0 x 16 or 3.0 x 16 slots available on my mother board.

It currently has the following.
ASRock H77M LGA 1155 Intel H77 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 Micro ATX Intel Motherboard
Intel Core i5-3570K Ivy Bridge Quad-Core 3.4GHz
XFX ProSeries P1-450S-X2B9 450W ATX12V / EPS12V SLI Ready CrossFire Ready 80
EVGA GeForce 8400 GS DirectX 10 01G-P3-1302-LR 1GB 64-Bit DDR3 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready Video Card

the RX 570 has recently hit $100 so it makes for a decent 1080p gamer

If you really want to be cheap, hit up eBay.
https://www.ebay.com/itm/SAPPHIRE-AMD-Radeon-RX-470-NITRO-4gb/133275701928?epid=14031087199&hash=item1f07d9d2a8:g:UUQAAOSwsc5dTIUf&LH_BIN=1

I'm about to sell one actually. Moving to an rx 580 I got for just over 100.

This gives an idea what the 470 vs 1050ti is like. 570 is about 10-15% better I think.

What is the difference between the one you poated and this one? This one got better reviews

The one you just linked has a dual fan design whereas the one Mr. Spock linked has a single fan. The dual fan design is much better and for the five star review with a $10 off coupon for 120 bucks, I'd say that's a great deal. However, it might be worth it to invest a little bit more money into an 8gb variant.
