@snnkrc,

This computer is so old that full specs are not listed. It is circa 2012.   The PCIe x 16 slot is generation 2.

Upgrading is a combination of CPU speed, motherboard RAM, GPU card, and the PSU that powers it.

A lowly i3-3220 with 4 GB of RAM and a GPU card at 49W is on the 300W PSU.

What are your needs? Specific game title helps.

Fan is very noisy. I am not a gamer by the way. Just need to replace the card.

OK...now I understand.

A GT 1030 card is far better, and would operate within your PSU requirement.
