Its not horrible but its not good either and there are details in the link in my last post

It might have worked fine for a while but its not a good unit and it wont last forever especially not with that low build quality
It's this one: https://www.amazon.in/Corsair-VS450-.../dp/B00X8QBT6M , not the latest one (which is: https://www.amazon.in/gp/aw/d/B078Y4...ob_neva_mobile ), but it has single dedicated +12V rail, bought it in 2016.

The 12v rail on that one is rated for 408 watts at 40c so hope you live in the colder parts of India
The warranty is only 3 years so it runs out here in 2019

How do you fit a new graphics card and a new PSU in a $60-ish budget? You don't. As made obvious by the OP, priority is the graphics card.

Now, more on topic, I agree with white owl. I'd rather buy a better, but used, graphics card, especially if it's only expected to perform for the next 6 months.

I'd also like to point out that a 960 and a 970 would draw less power which would be easier on the PSU, I didn't even notice just how bad it was. 270/x pulls more, performs worse and likely runs hotter which is bad if you live in India.
Less power=less heat
Less heat=better boost

Can I find a 960 for $60? Ebay (and all the American sites) take $100 for shipping. I have heard that one can find mining used RX 470 for $50 on TaoBao, but the website is in Chinese and I am not familiar with it like I am with AliExpress.

Edit: it seems you can actually find a GTX 960 for $60 on TaoBao, worth the risk? https://m.intl.taobao.com/detail/det...d=561437648942

The 960 is a nice option. It will run cooler, perform better, and be an all around clear cut above the first set of cards we talked about. I'd go for it personally.

I've got a GTX 950 for sale in the FS section, better than all the cards asked about in the OP

Obviously though, yeah, if you can afford a GTX 960 go for that. But you're not going to get one for ~$60 domestically.

Intel i9 9900K Coffee Lake @ X8 5309mhz (+47.5%)
AMD FX-8320 Vishera @ X4 5022mhz (+43.5%)
Intel i5 4690K Haswell @ X4 5013mhz (+43.2%)
AMD X4 960T Zosma @ X6 4870mhz (+62.3%)
Intel i7 6700 Skylake @ X4 4709mhz (+38.5%)
Intel i5 6400 Skylake @ X4 4588mhz (+69.9%)
2 OP pls nerf
