My apologies on the mixup.

All I see are PCI slots on that motherboard. It's going to be very difficult to find a capable card today that would fit those slots. You won't be able to get much in the way of a card that would allow you to play today's games, if you could find PCI video card at all.

Unless I'm, missing something from the picture.

Use cpu-z/ cupid,
CPU-Z | Softwares | CPUID

Open cupid go to the MainBoard section and post a screen shot.
Also go to the Graphic's section and do the same.
Might as well do the memory too

Scroll down the links page just a bit on the left side you'll see Downloads,
English 32-64 bit version :)

I would not waste a dime trying to upgrade your PC, you need a new motherboard before you do anything, and that would require a new non Dell case.

You need money before you even consider upgrading a PC.

Only PCI slots and only 2 memory slots, looks very old.
