I have a computer made in 2010 with 8 gigs of RAM, an Intel Core 2 extreme Q9300 processor, 500 watt power supply and a MSI Nvidia GT-710 video card.

https://www.amazon.com/MSI-GT-710-2...&qid=1642799683&sprefix=gt-710,aps,77&sr=8-18

I believe the version of PCI-E is 2.0 on the motherboard.

What MSI Nvidia video card under $600 would be the best upgrade?

I need the ability to run three monitors.

Any port configuration will work as I can easily get an adapter cable to go from VGA, displayport or DVI to HDMI.

I noticed when playing Fortnite the processor usage stays around 100% and I get a FPS of 25 on average.

Would the better video card give me higher FPS and less CPU usage?

Agreed.

At some point I'll build a new PC. Might be next year or so.

For now I just need to upgrade the video card if doing so will increase my FPS and lower my CPU usage.

You can get a 1660 card for a lot less, Although it may depend on how much you plan on doing with it.
