The general consensus seems to be the GTX 750ti. I asked this question recently, and although I am still struggling between the GTX 750ti and the GTX 760, the majority of respondents pushed hard for the GTX 750ti for being more than enough for 720p, and quite capable at 1080p.

The E7300 has a CPU mark score of 1715, not really a driving force for a 750ti.
However, it would not 'lose' anything. The 750 can run on 60 ish watts and that old factory pc unit may or may not handle it.
What it may not handle is factory bios programing from 7 years ago.
There is always a small chance new cards wont work on ancient O.E.M boards, or even any older pci-E board come to that.

What about bottlenecking?

I tried helping, but my knowledge is pretty limited in this regard. I don't know a lot about old, dual CPUs, but I imagine the dual core CPU might be a bit of a bottleneck. That being said, I can't imagine it would be that enormous, especially if you overclocked the CPU, as someone else suggested.

Thank you for helping me out. I think I'll wait for a while and save up for a new pc.

No problem, I'd save up for a quad core CPU or more, more being an AMD processor for a good price. After that, more RAM would probably be a good idea, although 2Gbs is so little, I don't know what could be done with that, since the more modern Windows OSs use almost that much I think.

From what I've been told/read, the integrated GPU in an i5 or i7, the current best one is the Intel HD 4600, which can run games like BF4 in medium settings at solid frame rates. I would have to say, that's pretty amazing, a lot better than the dedicated GPU my laptop has. Since you'll be doing some serious upgrading, you may want to consider the fact the the igpu isn't half bad, at least, until you are ready to buy a dedicated card.
