Is this Gigabyte GTX 1030 worth it?


Basically, my graphics card broke right as quarantine hit and now i have been looking for graphics cards. I found this Gigabyte GTX 1030 2GB Low Profile GDDR5 for about 142 Euros (160 USD) and i dont really know if it's worth getting. Can you guys give me your suggestions?

It's main selling point is it is very low power consumption. On the flip side, it is very low gaming performance. Like APU levels. If gaming is at all a consideration for it, then you probably want to be looking higher up.
