I currently have a EVGA Nvidia Geforce GTS250 512 MB, and I'm wondering if it would be worth upgrading it to a Nvidia GeForce GT 1030 OC 2G (https://www.amazon.com/dp/B07646VQ6T/?coliid=I4WMFPZGKL3NQ&colid=196APJR1WRGPP&psc=0&ref_=lv_ov_lig_dp_it). I know it's not a powerful GPU, but would it be a noticeable upgrade? Also, would it be compatible with an Asus P5QL Pro ATX motherboard?

funnily enough, that cheapo GT 1030 will actually be bottlenecked by your CPU

 

also it's a huge upgrade compared to the GTS250

Yes, it's quite a lot faster and should work on your motherboard.

May I suggest to get a used 750(ti). It should be better in terms of price to performance ;)

Main Gaming/Work Station:

i7-4790K, 16GB Ram, GTX 980Ti, Acer Predator x34 - 3440x1440 100Hz + Aux Monitors (constantly changing)

 

Remote/Travel-System:

i5-2500K, 8GB Ram, GTX 780, random 1920x1080 IPS

 

Servers: Update ongoing. More info when done ;)

but i think you should get it either way, it will improve your desktop experience and gaming in general, even if its getting bottlenecked

I already know it would be a bottleneck, but I just need something cheap that works better than my current GPU.
