Yes, I meant to write "RTX" (I am correcting the post above), and the RTX 2060 is the entry level model into this series.  Do get one with DDR6. 

 

This particular card, however, is very long, and you may not have that much space inside the case, measure the slot length and look up the length of the card in the specs.  Also, in terms of brands, Asus is lower on my preferred brands, I suggest in order:  MSI, Gigabyte, and EVGA.

I suggest a Nvidia 'RTX' card for the ray-tracing and better game optimization.  Upgrade the cooling to cope with the heat from a much higher-wattage graphics card than this system was designed for.  Add a rear case fan if it doesn't have one (the H50 in the Youtube I just watched did not have one), and add maximum vented PCI slot covers to allow more cooler, outside air to the graphics card fans.  Monitor GPU and CPU temps (and main system memory usage) with 'GPU-Z' to ensure they stay within reason.

Hello BiggAI

Thank you for your prompt response. I really appreciate it. The thing is that I am really bad with all these Graphic Cards terms. Do you think that the "ASUS NVIDIA DUAL RTX2060 A6G GDDR6 Graphics Card" would do the job? The other thing about the case and vented PCI covers was pretty clear,

(link of the graphic card mentioned above)

Thank you again!
