Want to add a graphics card to my PC but don't know which one works

HP Pavilion 550-153wb core i3 dual core processor 6GB RAM
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

I want to buy a graphics card to run games better but don't know which one because there are so many and my PC does have 1 PCI Express slot x16 and it has 1 x PCI Express (x1) slot, 1 x PCI Express (x1) mini slot. The system model is 550-153w. PLZ someone tell me which one to buy, I can give more info on my pc if you need it. It has integrated graphics but im pretty sure that wont change anything.

@Priyo446 

 

Its specs

It has a spare PCI Express x16 (Gen 3.0) which is suitable for a video card. The problem is it ONLY has 180W PSU. Newer cards require around 350W-400W PSU and very hard to find PSU which is suitable for your machine. For example
