Don't see this as preferable.

And a GTX 1060 will require a proper PSU, not the junk store specials in old PCs like these.
What if i get the following;
i3 9100f
Asus Prime H310M-E
Kingstonn HyperX Predator 8gb 3200mhz
GTX 1050 ti
HP S700 250GB SSD

Sums up at Rs.27334 and have to use same old case

What's the purpose and what's the budget?

A little guidance about what you're trying to do is necessary to not give you a vague answer. If you're trying to play some game from 2011, then it might make sense to do a cheap upgrade. If you're trying to play modern games, you're realistically looking at a new build since this is an entry-level non-gaming PC from 2009.

Well i do not have a big budgets so i cannot upgrade the cpu or mobo currently.
I am trying to upgrade to windows 10 and i have recently started learning programming and and i also want to learn ui/ux designing.

There's no GPU that costs that much that makes sense on such an ancient platform.

My first recommendation would be to save up a little more and build an entry-level Ryzen build that you can upgrade as time goes on. Stuffing a GPU in your current, old PC, won't really change whether or not you can competently run Windows 10 or do much for your general performance.

The second recommendation would be to find a refurbished mini-tower on NewEgg (not a small form factor) with an i5-2400 or i5-3470 that will already come with Windows 10 installed and murder what you have right now. There are a billion of these available for $200-$250.

If you find you need a GPU, you can slap in a used 750 Ti or 950 or 1050 Ti, ideally one without a supplementary power connector, for under $100.

yes i completely agree with your point but here in india the prices dont make sense alot of time and going for a ryzen entry level pc would also cost me more for me the max expense would be $275.

It's better than what you have, but I would stay far away from anything in a small form factor. Prebuilts in a small form factor are nightmares to upgrade. If you're going to use your hard-earned money to upgrade from a basic 2009 rig to a basic 2011 rig, it not being a complete dead-end for upgrades should be a very important factor on your priority list!

but wont a dgpu perform better
Yes but for 25k as a indian I can't afford a dgpu for that price I bought a pc in 2015 with i5 and gt610 at that time I don't know about pc but not I realised that even my I gpu is better . And for 11k you get a decent gpu and cpu for that price . But for that price don't even think of intel and nvidia.

i had considered a ryzen 5 3400G but its Rs.2000 more than Ryzen 3 3300x , yes 3400G has a igpu but i dont know why i feel its not worth bcz i can get a complete new pc with dgpu, ssd, processor and mobo within 27500 yes a premium of 2500 but it seems fine to me ,thats my point of view.
