Suggest you contact Dell support/forum, ask if it has an upgrade path for components, or what other owners managed to use.

Apparently it has one PCIe slot so you could add something like an

MSI Radeon R7 240

as a discrete 17 watt card. There's some on the Canadian Newegg site.

One issue MIGHT be, the Dell has an integrated video setup and telling it's BIOS to use the discrete might be a pain or not  or it might configure automatically. ???

I did go over to the Dell Community and searched Inspiron 560. These were some of the cards suggested and some of them were suggested in multiple threads.

HD 6450

HD 6570 

HD 7750

HD 5670

HD 6670

HD 5570

HD 5770

HD 6750

HD 6770

HD 4670 

I know these cards are on legacy drivers but out of these cards which ones would be the top choices that would not require any hardware upgrades?
