I bought this computer recently second hand and I want to upgrade the graphics card from the current GTX 260 to something newer to play games. Unfortunately, I don't know which gaming graphics card to buy that is compatible and usable for playing modern titles such as PubG. Any help will be greatly appreciated,

Thanks

Specs:

Intel Core i7 920
Motherboard: IPMTB-TK (Truckee)
Installed Ram: 9GB
NVIDIA GeForce GTX 260
Power supply: 460W
Computer case size:
  • Height: 40 cm (15.75 inches)
  • Width: 17.78 cm (7 inches)
  • Length: 43.18 cm (17 inches)
Hard drive: 1TB

Besides the current NVIDIA graphic card not having enough "horsepower" for gaming, it uses a lot of power (202 watts).

The current Intel processor may also not have enough "horsepower" for gaming.

The suggested NVIDIA graphic card is a nice improvement in performance, and it uses a lot less power (60 watts).

But as I previously said, your gaming experience may be handicapped by the current Intel processor.
