So, my 8800 GT broke and I'm looking for a replacement (I only need Firefox and Word basically). Just found this GPU for a good price ($53 new), but will it work on this 13-14 y old PC?

GPU to buy: Nvidia GT 610

CPU: Intel 2 Duo E8400

RAM: 2x2 GB DDR2

Motherboard: Asus Striker II Formula

PSU: Cooler Master Silent Pro 700W

Not sure if it's relevant, but when the GPU broke, I was on Firefox and it started to glitch and after rebooting the resolution was super low... (It was glitched even in the BIOS, so it's not driver related) but it's still working. When I opened the case I saw that the card was very bent. Is it normal?

Thanks
