I would try to find a second hand 2xxx series Nvidia. Something like a RTX 2070. Prices have fallen in the USA, that being said I am not sure about india

If you're looking for something cheaper and relatively new (2019) a GTX 1650 brand new is around $215 USD I believe

It'll run games like
valorant (120+ fps high settings)
GTA v (60-80fps medium settings)
Far cry 6 (55-75 fps low settings)
Age of empires IV (70+fps medium settings)

I personally use a gtx 1650 and I find it quite good for the price

you live in india check aliexpress for a i7 for your motherboard. almost any modern card will be loads better than your old card... 1050ti or better is about to be night and day for you.570/580/hell even an older card like 280x is gonna be magic.

gtx1060/70/1650gddr6 ... its all gonna be heaven for you.
