My video card gave out this week and I don't know what kind of card to replace it with. I am not really a gamer, but occasionally step into that world. I would like to do basic web browsing, live streaming, and occasional games.
All I know about my computer is that it is a Dell Dimension E521.
I saw that Newegg.com has a MSI N210-MD1G/D3 GeForce 210 1GB 64-bit DDR3 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready Low Profile Ready Video Card for $15. Will that work?

Yes. I use that card, and it's fanless. It's all you will need. As long as your board has a pci-e slot, it will work fine.
You will only be able to do very light gaming with that system regardless of the video card you put in. its an old athlon64/sempron system. Even with a dual core athlon64 it must struggle on facebook.
