This is for those who have potato PCs and looking for stuff to upgrade their stats

My computer is an HP Elite 7300 Series MT
6 GB RAM (4+2) replaced 2nd slot
Intel i3 2120 CPU 3.30GHz
Windows 10 64-bit Version 1511 (can not update)
Motherboard: 2AB5 (Pegatron)
Price should not exceed 200 Riyals (I live in Saudi Arabia)

I play Driver San Francisco at 4fps all the time on 800x600 res and lowest graphics :(

If you have any tips to super boost the PC, give suggestions (except driver because I am on a stupid processor)

That's an expensive potato, or, a cheap (uh, low priced) computer.

Yeah, RIP me. at least the fps of NFSMW is quite good, except for max settings and high resolution.
LITERALLY 640x480.

It would be nice if you could find a graphics card that would fit in your system, because the CPU isn't actually that slow, it's just that the integrated video chip in your i3 just isn't good enough to handle games, even older ones.

I'm not an expert though, but I googled a bit and it seems that the type of video cards that fit in your system seems limited by the Power supply, or by the BIOS version of your mobo. This forum post explains it better than I can:
https://h30434.www3.hp.com/t5/Desktop-Hardware-and-Upgrade-Questions/Upgrade-GPU-HP-Elite-7300-MT/td-p/7479046

Edit: I found another forum post from a person with the same motherboard as yours: https://h30434.www3.hp.com/t5/Desktop-Hardware-and-Upgrade-Questions/Pegatron-2AB5-compatible-graphics-card/td-p/6652949
The reply links to the manual for the HP Elite 7300 MT, the supported graphic cards are listed on page 3: https://shop.bechtle.de/medias/WQSWBVlCycyXQZo9CBYV58-30.pdf

I don't know how much video cards cost in your country, but you could try to find a cheap Radeon HD 6570 for example (probably used, since these type of cards are from 2011-2012, I think).
