NVIDIA GeForce GT 710
64 bit operating, x64 based processor

You should use CPU-Z to check the motherboard model.

If Google returned the right info, your motherboard supports i7 3.5Ghz CPU, 16GB RAM, USB 3.0... once upgraded it would be an entry-level computer to use for rendering software. That's what the Intel H87 chipset could do at most.
