I am looking for an Nvidia graphics card to play games at a higher frame rate since right now I have an Nvidia GeForce GT 730 and am only hitting 30fps on the lowest settings on games like Fortnite for example, I am not sure what is compatible with my motherboard or different components in my PC. I have an 82F2 motherboard, Intel i5-7400 CPU @3.00GHz and my budget is under $400 AUD.

Is this your computer?
If yes, you seem to be in luck. You can swap the PSU and use pretty much any GPU you want. If you don't want to upgrade the PSU, then check and see if the one it came with (300W) has extra 6 or 8 pin power. If yes, then you should be able to use a card 110W or less. If no, then you will be limited to just power from the board. You could also use a SATA to 6 Pin adapter but don't try to pull more than 40W or so this way.
Overall I would say get a 1650 if you want quick and easy with just board power. Get a 1650 Super or equivalent if you have the 6 pin or SATA power available. Get whatever you want if you can replace the PSU.
