it's 6th gen intel so it's not worth putting money into it nor do i want to build him a new rig

I have the exact same motherboard in my media server.  I bought You are not allowed to view links. Register or Login graphics card back in 2018 for $140 primarily for doing video encoding.

In the price range you are looking, maybe something like a GTX 1630 these days. I haven't shopped around in a while so I'm not sure what the performance is like.

Well, I jumped on this one for $170

it's from amazon so easy to return. The marks were5%better then the radon rx 580.
I'm going to keep this & give the old gpu to my son.

To anyone still looking.  The Zotac store started a refurbished GPU sale yesterday.  All but two have sold out at this point.  The 2070 for $170 was the sweet spot.  There is still a 2070 left for $210.  The good part is that it's a super.  The not so good part is that it's a mini.  But a 2070 for $210 is still a good price.
