    Best option IMO is to try and pick up a 2nd hand GT1030 from ebay, just make sure it's the gddr5 version and that it's cheaper than a new one. If you can't find one at a reasonable price on ebay then buy a new one.

    Any card bigger than GT1030 will get strangled by your CPU, so no point going for GTX1050.

    You didn't say what size case you have so I can't say which specific model is best, just make sure it fits.
    Agreed, GTX 1050 would get "bottlenecked" by the CPU. Also, when searching for the Dell model provided by OP, we can see the PSU isn't above 300W, that imediatly limits the GPU choices.

    The only question now is, GT 1030 normal or low profile?

    I7-7700t
    16Gb ram 3000 Mhz
    Passive GT1030
    Samsung 960pro ssd


    and it works great !
    I can even play EU and other games at the same time.
    So I would defintely advise the GT1030

    Looks like a gtx 1030 would work well, currently can get a decent OC version for 92 usd with amazon prime, which for a gfx card of that caliber isn't too bad.

    I would recommend gtx 1070, as that is what I use without issue on everything I run, but they are kinda pricey still at around 500 usd.

    Did anyone considered the PICEx version of the motherboard?
    It is probably v1.0, maybe V2.0.
    Those newer GPU's all have V3.0
    So in the end all those newer cards will be bottlenecked due to the bandwith limitations of the V1.0 or V2.0 of the motherboard.
    And ofc also all the rest of the hardware in the system that is also not the fastest anymore.
    The GPU will be sitting around and be waiting till something gets thru to it from the rest of the system.

    I would advise to go buy a used system with some newer stuff in it.

    The pcie version doesn't actually make a huge difference, it's not something to really worry about when you're using a low end gfx card.

    It's easy to say you should upgrade a core2duo (and tbh you probably should) but if you don't have the money that may not be an option.

    V2.0 about 8GiB/s vs V3.0 about 16GiB/s if I remember correct.
    Tbh I would not consider investing $100 or $150 on the old system, while you could have a quicker system for maybe $250 used.
    I would try to save that extra $100 somewere then, and maybe wait just a little bit longer.
    And with a little bit of luck you would have a dedicated GPU in it also.
    Just need to look around a little, but it's easy to say indeed if you know what to look for.

    Anyway, good luck hunting for that GPU, just wanted to throw my opinion in about it.
