With the old slow Celeron and a OEM PSU, you will be severely limited as to what card you can use and which one won't be bottle necked by the CPU. Can you see the nameplate on the PSU to post a photo of it?

That is a rather old computer. You may want to look into a GTX 750ti. That in itself will probably be a bottleneck, but you could always transfer it to another computer later. You should probably get a new PSU, also.

In that case, you would probably be best waiting for now, saving up some money, and buying a whole new system later.

Well, the first thing I would do is upgrade the cpu. According to an old vague fujitsu document about your computer, the best cpu your system will support is a core 2 duo e6850. That alone will double your cpu performance. Trying to game with that old celeron will get you nowhere. They go for about 18$ on amazon(I know, super expensive). A gt 740 would probably work.
