When running Euro Truck Simulator 2 on medium graphics settings my CPU was at about 20%, my RAM was at about 60% and my GPU was at 100%.
I would like to achieve 30 FPS on high on games like Kerbal Space Program, Euro Truck Simulator 2, Spintires and Cities: Skylines.
Currently I achieve between 15 and 20 FPS in Euro Truck Simulator 2 on medium graphics with shadows turned off.
Spintires is about the same as ETS2 on similar settings.
I also got between 9 and 11 FPS on the Racecraft Techdemo on 40% graphics.
All of my drivers are up up date, however my PC is full of dust and I have just ordered some compressed air to clean it.
My specs are:
Operating System Windows 10 Pro 64-bit
CPU Intel Core i5 2320 @ 3.00GHz
Sandy Bridge 32nm Technology
RAM 4.00GB Dual-Channel DDR3 @ 665MHz (9-9-9-24)

I benchmarked my PC with NovaBench and these were the results:

What GPU should I buy that's compatible with these specifications, that will allow me to run said games?
I am on a quite a tight budget and can only spend around £100 ($150 USD)
