Hello, im buying a new graphics card and im not 100% sure if it will work with my pc, i bought one GPU before and it didnt work so I had to return it, I dont know if it was because I didnt have enough RAM or if it was because it needed a 8pin and I had 6 pin and 2 pin and maybe the 2pin didnt work uh I dont know, anyway I chose this one: https://www.alza.cz/asrock-radeon-r...zCqZd9yOLLfzakRKJlIdFSXTm4FM1MKI3_ly_ES02IUcM and also I will be ordering a 4gb ram with it so I can fully run it, do you think it will be compatible with other things. thank you for your opinions!

What ever GPU you decide on...you need to check the minimum PSU (power supply unit) requirements and then make sure you meet that and have the available PCIe cables to power the GPU.

From what I can find on the internet, you have a 300W pw supply. That is not going to work with just about any gaming type card.
If you want to install a real video card, you need a quality pw supply. In addition, your motherboard is pretty old. IF you are going to install a modern video card, I would update the bios to the latest one available prior to installing the video card.
Your motherboard is now 8yr old and really it does not make much sense to invest a lot of money into upgrading 8yr old tech. Up to you.
