What are you planning on doing with the computer? If you want to play games on it, you'll probably need to upgrade the RAM in addition to getting a GPU. If you're just using it for basic web browsing, work, or school-related activities, integrated graphics will work fine (though more RAM would still help performance. Windows 10 struggles on anything 4GB or under from my experience.)

 

Edit: I'm dumb. You said gaming PC in the first sentence.

I mostly speak from my own past experience from similar problems. My solution may not work for you, but I'll always try my best to help as much as I can. If you want me to see your reply, make sure to quote my comment or mention me @WaggishOhio383, and I'll get back to you as soon as possible.

How much does this particular system cost? I wouldn't use it for anything more than a web-browsing/ content consumption machine. Especially for refurbished units, you can get a far more better used Dell Optiplex with a Core i5 for that money. It'll have a better CPU albeit maybe a generation or two older, but with more RAM as office machines typically have 8GB nowadays and maybe even a SSD if you're lucky.

That's not a good starting place. Here's what you'd want to do with a budget of $500:

  • Buy a Dell Optiplex off of eBay, or your local classifieds. Should cost about $175.
  • Buy a video card like a 1050Ti or 1650 that doesn't require any PSU cables, and plug that in.
  • With whatever you have left, maybe upgrade the RAM or add a small SSD.

Really, with a budget that small if it's just for gaming I'd get a console.

Also regarding the graphics card, depends on the type of games you want to play and at what details, resolution, and frame rates.
