So basically i got a trash pc for around 149 quid some months ago and wanted to upgrade it but have no idea on upgrading what is in my pc. I have a 0WR7PY (Product) Motherboard and i have no idea what kind of gpu i can use for this motherboard so i am requesting help from the community of Toms hardware. Btw im wanting this just to play roblox with a stable framerate with my brother.

I think you computer has a very small Power Supply so any GPU will only be powered from the PCIe Slot. You will need a low power GPU, but that game doesn't have very high system requirements.
I think one of these 2 GPUs will work for you, but I don't know if your case allows for full height or only low profile GPUs.

The second one is the faster of the two GPUs.

Would i be able to use a rx 460 as it is better and uses the same power consumption as the gt 1030.

Look into the GTX 1050 as that doesn't need anything more than the PCIe port and is typically faster than the RX 460. https://www.anandtech.com/bench/product/2497?vs=2500
Conversely most GTX 1650's don't need external power either and are much faster.
