My bad, i was on the wrong page. Seems like there are multiple A58 7522's.

Anyway, you need to check if you have a an PCIe 16x port on your motherboard.
All i found was it is a LGA775 and that is more than enough information on what kind of gpu you need in order for it not to be bottlenecked by the e5200.

You'll want to buy an 750Ti for the best pair with your components.

Oh and i'd recommend for you to get more ram aswell if your unit only has 2gb since it is the bottlenecking factor when you've gotten an gpu.
I'd recommend for you to get atleast 4gb but highly suggest to get 8gb.

From what I can tell, you have a 280 watt power supply and a BTX form-factor motherboard. Can you take a picture of the back of your system and the inside and post them (imgur.com and then link here)? The 280 watt power supply is worrisome, but where the expansion slots are could kill any idea of (meaningful) upgrading.

Given the location of your expansion slots, you are going to be limited to a single-slot width card and since is a Small Form Factor case, a low-profile/half-height, single=slot width card at that. I'd probably look at something like a GT 720/730. It would still be an upgrade over your integrated graphics, but you're not going to be playing AAA games with it.
