The issue could be CPU overheating or a bad PSU. Have you checked for those issues?

Perhaps you could change the display port (DVI, VGA, HDMI, etc.).

YEESH, 2GB of RAM? Most games won't be able to run on that-the minimum is 4GB and even there you will have a bit of a problem. At those specs I guess you could get a NVIDIA GeForce GTX 730 (or even 720), but it's best to upgrade the RAM a bit. 2 GB isn't really gaming grade. Is it possible to tell me your CPU model to know whether it runs on ddr2 or ddr3 RAM? Go into the Device Manager, open "Processors" and tell me the exact number and model.

If you computer is old, you might want to consider building a new one instead of upgrading it.

That's a ton better of an idea. I'm running a 7-year old computer with an Intel Celeron 420 clocked at 1.6 GHz, 2GB of RAM, and no video card and I'm getting a new computer soon with an AMD r9 280x, intel core i5 4690k, and 8GB of RAM. Those are pretty good specs for gaming.

With 600-700 dollars you can get a MUCH better machine than this.

Great build but I would just change the memory to 2 sticks of 8GB. It'll be much better. 4 GB is struggling today in gaming. 2 cores on a CPU doesn't seem to cut it because some games are nearing 4 or even 5 cores of use, but then again this build is very future-proof so upgrading to something like an i5 5670k (when it releases)is no prob...
I like it. If it were possible you could go the distance and get a better case and a modular power supply, but I'm just being luxurious. ^_^
