Your entire system is in need of an overhaul. No joke.

If that's not an option - at the very least, the power supply needs to be replaced FIRST. That's one of Cooler Master's bottom barrel units.

If 'no' to that suggestion, then I can't recommend more than a GTX 1650, or other gpu that doesn't require external PCIE connections.

I've being using an older gpu (GTX 670 wind fore oc) and it takes a 6+8 it's been working fine even with the larger ocs I've hit it with

That doesn't mean it's actually safe now. Those old Elites were really quite awful; just because you haven't rolled snake eyes on the dice in this crapshoot doesn't mean you should invest in a new GPU to run on it.

I would not use any GPU that requires supplementary power on that PSU.
