Hi

 

You can install an Nvidia GTX 1050 similar to this product without having to upgrade your power supply.

 

It will game better than the AMD integrated graphics you are now using.

 

One problem now (because of GPU data mining) is it is very hard to find the product and the prices have gone up.

 

A GTX 1060 or higher will require a 400 watt or greater power supply.

Hi

 

You need, at least, a 400 watt power power supply with a six pin PCIe supplemental power supply connection to run the Radeon RX 560.

Hi

 

The Radeon will work with a 550 watt PS. Make sure the new PS will fit in your PC's chassis.

 

Check this site for a comparison of the GTX 1050 vs the Radeon 560.

 

Your AMD CPU will be a possible bottleneck when playing some games.

Hi

 

The choice is up to you.

 

Both cards are comparable. But you will have to upgrade the PS to run the Radeon.
