WHAT HAVE I GOT IN MY DESKTOP?
  • Monitor 27in, 1920x1080 (Dell) HDMI
  • Monitor 20in, 1680x1050 (Dell) DVI to VGA converter
  • 8Gb RAM

That's a really bad unit. In reality it's just 312W in the 12 V rail which is what powers any modern hardware in the past dozen plus years. If it's as old as the rest of the system, it has degraded even more.

It needs to be replaced even if you don't buy a gpu but especially if you buy one, the PSU HAS to be replaced first.
