You could just get a new GPU.

If by lunix you mean Linux, be sure that the distro you pick has good history of supporting whichever GPU you saved up to buy.

If you are tight on budget, scout out a few games that you'd like to play over the next year or two, then consider OS and GPU requirements accordingly. Don't evaluate things spec-wise. Evaluate per game and per setting.

Good find, but the nature of the site probably skews the data, showing more of less prominent OS.

Look let's call a spade a spade. Honestly speaking I find all of them seriously leaving something to be desired.
How about one that:
Works efficiently.
Doesn't take up a lot of space, memory and drive wise.
Is reasonably secure.
Doesn't have a s**tload of useless do-dads layered on.
And is user friendly. Meaning you don't have to be a rocket scientist to use it.
But most of all isn't obsolete in 6 months.
