I see the Athlon II 4X 945 running here.

Tell us about your RAM and GPU there may be other issues.
I'm seeing 2x RAM slots and a 4GB "limit". Look around and see if 8GB is actually supported. My Optiplex 380 has 2x RAM slots and a 4GB "limit" but handles 8GB just fine. With 8GB RAM a 3 GB GTX1060 works better than a 4GB GTX1050Ti.
4GB RAM will pretty much limit you to a 1GB GPU. The CPU scores are about the same as my X5470 Xeon swapped Dell Opti 380.
Try for 8GB RAM, and a 2-3GB GPU.
