Need a new gpu... still. STRICT budget

Hey all,
I have been looking for a new graphics card for a while now. The card in my pc right now, is a trash GeForce 210, lol. I need my new card to be a budget of no more then like $80 because I'm only a kid. All I want to GPU to do, is run FORTNITE SMOOTHLY! (good settings). If anybody can link me a gpu that fits my needing, that'd be great! (It can be a used GPU, if its a good price.)
specs:
- Intel Pentium G4400
- MSI H170M-A PRO motherboard
- 8 gbs of ram
- Corsair CX 650M psu
- Cooler Master lite 3.1 mATX case
- monitor: https://www.amazon.com/BenQ-GW2270-Monitor-Performance-Mountable/dp/B019EFMK1I/ref=sr_1_2?ie=UTF8&qid=1520554140&sr=8-2&keywords=ben+q

  1. R7 265, R7 250 (GDDR5) try to find atleast 2GB(asus perf), GT 550 and above same for 600 series, 750Ti (don't order from china).
    Note, GT 500/600 are high wattage users, same as 400.

    Where do you live, that might be a factor.
  2. maybe check out the build contest going on now then. sub $500 builds specifically with the idea of running fortnight. Sub $80 you're looking at the GTX 1050 at most or the RX 550 at most. Probably not even those unless you find one on sale. http://www.tomshardware.com/forum/id-3658564/builds-fortnite-budget-gaming.html#20774137

  4. Should be pretty easy, if you find some deals give us the GPU name and deal.
    Try to find 1050 and RX 550 cause they will perform slightly better and run cooler.

    GTX 1050s are currently priced around double what they are looking to spend, at least going by online prices, where they are in the vicinity of $150 or more. Perhaps you mean a GT 1030, since those are in a similar performance range to an RX 550. Even all the GT 1030s and RX 550s that I see online at popular retailers are priced at least a bit more than $80 now though.

    And those are lower-end cards, so one shouldn't expect them to run Fortnite well at max settings. At 1080p they could probably run medium settings reasonably well though, or a bit higher settings if resolution were reduced to around 720p.
  7. A 750 Ti would be a bit better than a GT 1030 / RX 550, but as someone already mentioned, I'm not sure how much I would trust one bought direct from China. Some of the cards coming from there are counterfeit, and are basically slower cards dressed up to look like the cards they claim to be. That might not be the case with this one, but it's difficult to say for sure.

    Plus, when ordering from China, you're typically looking at three weeks or more for your package to arrive, and if anything is wrong with it, shipping it back will likely be prohibitively expensive. I sometimes order from China, but usually just inexpensive items that I'm willing to wait a month or so for.

    There are real 750Ti's but you need to check the image of seller and see how much rating does he has i would buy from rating over 1000 and compare pictures of real 750Ti and the picture that he is selling, but if you buy fake product ebay is always helpful you can get your money back and keep that or throw it away.

    Not all sellers ship it, some via planes , i've seen some of them that ship electronics one item came in 5 days :O

    Update: I said wrong about 1000 rating, he should check reviews not ratings of items he has sold, and check if he has sold 300 for example and 1 bad review don't buy.
