That's a pretty old system, what's your power supply? Perhaps it's not getting enough power to run fully.

Also what OS version? Did you have a graphics card in it before?

Honestly though, that's a lot of GPU for such an old CPU, you're going to be bottlenecked pretty severly.

Agree with the likely problem, as well as the fact that is a very poor balance. Your CPU would probably struggle to load the gpu more than 25%. You're really going to need something a bit more modern.
