Look on your used market for the RX 460, RX 560 or GTX 750 Ti. If you score a really good deal on eBay and your PSU has a 6-pin (it should), you could land an RX 570 for $60 before shipping.

I looked at this listing on ebay

https://www.ebay.com/itm/XFX-R9-380X-45-AMD-Radeon-R9-380X-DD-XXX-4GB-GDDR5-Graphics-Video-Card/303214016986?epid=1075330495&hash=item4698f6b9da:g:3NsAAOSwAUJdH7VM

the R9 380x is more performance than those ones

It is more performance than all but the 570. That being said you need to make sure your psu can handle it.

Lots of things to consider here. First off, does you Dell board support a standard 24-pin ATX connection? Or will you need a PSU adapter? Second, will that card physically fit in your case or on your board? Some Dell boards, particularly Optiplexes after the -90 series, put SATA connections and USB 3.0 in places where you can't install anything bigger than an ITX card. That's a pretty tall card, too. Will it fit in your case?

 

The R9 380X is going to be faster than anything I suggested except the RX 570. If you can squeeze a few more pennies and get a 570 for $75 (possible with Best Offer) and it fits your case and mobo, that's your best choice.

Then it should be fine. I had a gtx 960 and it was a decent card and the 380 is slightly better so it should be a good choice in that price range. If you can find an rx 470 or 570 used for a similar price I would go for that but the 380 is a good option.

If you can get that for under 60, great.

 

If you had a generic 500w supply that might be borderline, but an evga one should be ok.

Should be fine then. Just pop open the case and make sure there's nothing sticking out behind the PCIe x16 slot. Usually it's the USB 3.0 port or SATA ports, but SATA ports can be worked around with right-angle connectors and brute force.

If you could stretch your budget a bit, another option you could have is a 70$ (+shipping) RX 470 "mining edition" card from eBay, here's an example: LINK

 

The downside is that it has a single DVI port, which means you're limited to a 1920x1200 ... you can use a passive DVI to HDMI adapter to get HDMI.

 

If there's compatibility issues, you will probably be able to flash the card with a regular bios, there's plenty of documentation out there.

 

Anyway, if you're not technical, a card like the 40$ one suggested a few posts above would make more sense for you.

That card runs very hot. The XPS case only has 1 fan (exhaust). You may run into heat problems on the whole system
