I have a desktop with Ryzen 3 2200G, ASUS B350 PLUS motherboard, Antec GX200 cabinet, XPG 3000 MHz 16 GB RAM, Corsair CX450 PSU, Dell S2240L FullHD monitor.

I am looking for a GPU to help improve graphics performance without costing too much in electricity. I have come across 2 interesting units as below:

1. Gigabyte GV-RX560OC-4GD REV2.0 Radeon RX 560 OC 4GB @ Rs. 7599/= - https://www.amazon.in/Gigabyte-GV-RX560OC-4GD-REV2-0-Computer-Graphics/dp/B079LSNP74/

2. Sapphire 11267-18-20G Radeon Pulse RX 560 4GB @ 9,666/= - https://www.amazon.in/Sapphire-11267-18-20G-Radeon-Pulse-Graphics/dp/B077WDBWGG/

3. Gigabyte Radeon RX570 Gaming 4GB GDDR5 PCI-E, with WINDFORCE 2X with 90mm Blade Fan Graphics Card (GV-RX570GAMING-4GD) @ Rs. 12,004/= - https://www.amazon.in/Gigabyte-Radeon-RX570-GDDR5-Graphics/dp/B06Y3RT952/

I would prefer a card which draws less power as the desktop is generally used as general purpose machine and I would like to avoid wasting electricity unless being used for gaming. I am not looking for ultimate performance but just enough to allow FullHD gaming in 2016/2017 titles.

Size of graphics card might also be an issue as my motherboard is MicroATX form factor.

How about the Gigabyte version at 7.5 K?

I am not comfortable with the used market. Are there any known negatives with this card (option 1 above)?

I will be happy if it boosts gaming by 50% compared to on board at a minimal additional electricity usage.

Because compared to other RX 560 cards on Amazon this one is priced very low. I was worried that it has some major flaw because of which it is so. For eg. this Gigabyte Radeon RX570 Gaming 4GB GDDR5 PCI-E, with WINDFORCE 2X with 90mm Blade Fan Graphics Card (GV-RX570GAMING-4GD) happens to be priced at 12 K while others are upwards of 17 K. But many online and onsite reviews seem to suggest that it heats up too much.

I am just worried about any major flaws and power draw. If there is no apparent major flaw and power draw is reasonable I should go for it. Provided it actually will significantly improve my experience compared to the APU Vega GPU.

Thank you for the ideas. Looks like this is getting me confused even more, but IF I buy at this point then it will be the RX 460 from Gigabyte for 7.5 K. Else I will just post-pone the whole thing and stay with my APU alone.
