XPS 8300, GPU upgrade

Hey guys,

I know it’s a real old build. But I was wondering what I could do to upgrade my XPS 8300? It’s the i5 base model from Best Buy from 2011. I was looking for a GPU but I see there’s a lot of problems with Nvidia and the XPS. I was wondering could someone link me to an affordable GPU that is good to great don’t need anything overclocked I play game called Runescape. I just need an upgraded that has been tested and works. I plan on recording videos so it just needs to be better looking at anything in the price range of 70-130$ USD.

For just $139 (£139), can the new budget GTX 1050 Ti outperform a 4 Year Old, $500 high end GTX 680 graphics card from 2012? The once $500 GTX 680 can now be found for a similar price to the newly released $139 budget GTX 1050 Ti and on paper, their performance should be very similar. Although ...
