If this is to pair with your Optiplex, we're going to need to know how old the PSU is in that system and the quality of the PSU(aka make and model) to understand if you're fine just buying a GPU or if you need to factor in a GPU+PSU during a purchase.

Don’t expect 60 FPS. GTAV on a FX4300 will likely see drops into the 30’s.
Easy enough to swap out a FX4300 (AM3+ socket) with something like an A10, provided the BIOS supports it. Won't be the fastest rig in the world, but it will definitely handle everything he throws at it for sub HD gaming. (1680x1050) BTW: That's a really odd number. I have never seen this specific resolution before.

Edit: as pointed out lower down the A10 doesn't will work in AM3+ sockets. My apologies. I hate it when I slip up like that.

Its good for the OP to manage expectations, could be disappointing otherwise if expecting 60+ fps from this gpu upgrade. This might help manage expectations https://www.gamersnexus.net/game-bench/1911-gta-v-cpu-benchmark-4790k-3570k-9590-more
