Is there a video card out there for a Dell XPS 8700 running Windows 10 pro that will allow me to use a thunderbolt 3 monitor from LG?

i have a DELL XPS 8700 desktop and have a decent video card in it now. I have upgraded it to 32GB RAM and it has been a great computer. I love this desktop and I am running windows 10 pro with all the latest updates installed. I have 2 new monitors that use what they call Thunderbolt 3, this port looks like a USB -C port. The monitors work great on the macbook pro, and the other Dell XPS laptops that have a TB3 port.

However, I am wanting to buy a video card that will support these monitors with a TB3 cable (LG Monitor). I don't do anything like gaming, mostly just word documents, visual studio and visual studio code. Is there a video card I can buy and install that will give me a TB3 port for the new LG monitors?

Thanks in advance
