    Should I use Easy Driver to automatically update the Driver? Each time after reinstalling Windows, I always use the support tool. I do not know how to find the manufacturer's driver files
    This probably should be the start of a new thread.

    Do you mean "Driver Easy"? I am congenitally suspicious of such software. I'm not familiar with how they make money, but they are basically providing a service that most of us won't pay for.

    A lot of drivers are included in Windows. Others through Windows Update. nVidia graphics drivers are easy to find (nvidia.com). Intel drivers are not easy to find. (Their newest drivers may not include support for older graphics or motherboard chipsets.)

    What I try to do is download installers for all of the drivers that I need, for use when I install Windows.

    I use a Gigabyte GTX 1050ti in my Dell XPS 8500. It requires about 72W and should work in your PCEe 2.0 slot, but check the power available (I have a PCI3 3.0 slot and so am not sure what the 2.0 provides). The card is designed to not require additional power so there is no wire to connect to the power supply. The 1050ti has 4GB of ram.

    It is important to make sure you know that the video connectors on the card match your monitor's input. I chose the Gigabyte because I needed one DisplayPort for my monitor and one HDMI for my TV/monitor so I could use a second monitor when not using the TV function.

    There are many models of the 1050ti and the principle differences are the video ports on the cards, so pick a model with the right kinds of ports. My card cost me $131.00 so you can probably get one at or just within your budget. The GTX 1050 is cheaper but only has 2GB of ram. Try to get a 4GB card.

    Very important: As soon as your card is installed check NVidia for any graphics driver updates.

    If you have a nVidia card, you should also have installed the nVidia Experience software which will tell you when a new driver is available for installation.

    Mine just notified me of the new driver and will install as soon as I can.
