  1. To play what games & on what settings?

    And also your budget.

    I'd recommend getting something like this:

    https://www.amazon.co.uk/Gigabyte-GV-N730-2GI-GT730-Graphic-Card/dp/B00LHLB1WC/ref=sr_1_4?s=computers&ie=UTF8&qid=1485702592&sr=1-4&keywords=graphics+card

    If you're on a budget that is.

    You don't want a bottleneck, that's for sure.

    If you want to spend a little more for an OC card you can go for this:

  2. If it's for gaming, dont go less than that rx 460 or 750ti (730 is not spec'd for games). However, that very old cpu will hold you back in modern AAA games. Probably be ok with older games or lower settings.
  3. Best answer
    For gaming, that CPU will likely bottleneck even a 750Ti in certain games, as minimum frame-rate is usually determined by the CPU.

    So unless you want to upgrade the CPU in the near future, I would go with an RX 460 or 750Ti if you are hoping to get around 60 fps at 1080p (with a mix of medium to high settings - depending on the game and its age).

    If you wanted to max everything out, well I still would not bother with that particular CPU. Some graphical settings such as shadow quality, draw distance, FOV, certain types of AA, etc. are affected by CPU horsepower rather than GPU.
