    Let's discuss whether you have an actual dedicated graphics card installed in your PC or not. If you do, download the drivers that are suitable for the model you have.
    If not, you have no option besides buying one. From the newest series, the GT 1030 costs about 80$ here. In case that's out of your budget, you can look for older generations' entry-level gpus, like the gt 710 or R5 230 from the AMD side, which costs about $30-40 here. Used ones are also available, but make sure you choose a seller wisely.
    The problem is if you only have an integrated graphics card, especially such a cheap one given your CPU is that they are only suitable to provide graphics output for basic tasks like desktop, web browsers etc. They are not suitable for gaming. Miraculous drivers don't exist that somehow transform your integrated gpu into a beast that is capable of running demanding games. The software can only do so much, effectively using the resources that are available. In such case, you can forget gaming (except for more than decade old games like GTA SA or games that are not about graphics).
