Hi, the best graphics card that i could find that fits the price range is the Zotac GT640 which is a bit faster then the R7 240 but the issue is due to the small form factor of the desktop, it will not fit and it is pushing the power supply to its upper limit. My suggestion is to either save up for a new compuer or stick with that R7 240 which would work although you will need to swap out the bracket to fit in the case.

Yes he can use PCI-E 3.0 as it is backwards compatible with the motherboard.
