Graphic cards compatible with this version of Movie studio

Hi, I have Movie Studio 15 platinum and my cpu is Amd Athlon X4 950 AM4, I read that the compatible Nvidia cards are the GeForce 9xx series, but not to go blind, some of you have already installed one and I use Movie Studio without problems?
I thought I'd get one with at least 4GB of RAM (unfortunately at the moment I only have 8GB of RAM on my pc and I can't buy any more: either the card or the ram, so it's better to take the dedicated video card) and a GPU frequency around 1 mhz.
I would like to spend less than 100 euros (if I find it used, even better).

I think to NVIDIA GeForce GTX 970 4gb or Radeon rx 570 8gb, here in Italy I find them for about 100 euros used.
Thank you

You will do much better with a Nvidia 1660 or better. GPU support is only minimal in earlier cards.

Surely (from what I read), but the prices go up and not just a little, I will try to find a solution that satisfies the quality and performance, but without having to exceed a certain amount.
Thanks for the moment.

You will satisfy your performance expectation with a 1660 or better. You will get only modest gains with a 970.

As far as "quality," don't hold your breath. It's not a feature of GPU encoding.

Yes, I guess this, by quality I meant having a card that, in fact, can withstand a certain workload without having to weigh on the pc cpu, and that is why in terms of performance we need something that does not force to replace the graphics card model after a short time. For the moment I don't have to do big work, but a couple of years ago I worked on a video clip with Movavi and it was a real "drama", especially as regards the editing, which does not allow you to freeze several frames in specific points of the "storyboard", but this has nothing to do with the performance of the graphics card.
This evening I found one for 90 euros, I will probably bet on that one (as soon as I can buy it).
Thank you
