I have a Lenovo D20 ThnkStation. I would really like to upgrade the video card on it so that I can game on it for a few more years before replacing it. Is it worth the investment? If so, what would be the best way to go? Should I get a Nvidia RTX card or stick with something cheaper. My specs are below.

Are you using the stock power supply? If you are, it probably won't be able to handle a good gaming card. I'd just swap the system for a whole newer one, you can find a used gaming setup for maybe $3-400 including a recent video card. Newer cards could have an issue running on that older OEM motherboard, outside of the power issue.
