With those kind of specs you'll have a bad time doing any of the above.
A Core 2 Duo from 2008 won't cut it these days... even for some basic tasks.
In my opinion trying to upgrade this rig is simply a waste of money nowadays. Aside from the performance, you're missing out on many "remotely" modern features.

I'm guessing you're on a low budget, but you can still get something decent compared to what you have now.
I'll suggest you going on the second hand market and finding an I7 3770 or even an I7 2600 machine... there are plenty of used Lenovo ThinkCentres and Dell Optiplexes on there.

Purely based on the things said above, I just wouldn't waste my money on upgrading a GPU in that Lenovo prebuilt(which also has most likely an ancient PSU). My advice is to save up and atleast get an I7 2nd/3rd gen machine as they run really cheap these days.
