    Its likely compatible, there's more than basic specs. PCI-Express is generally backward and forward compatible but you only get the features that are supported by the old spec. The big thing you will need to verify is that your power supply is of good enough quality and wattage to support the card you choose.

    No idea on the power supply since it's not a well known brand unit that has been reviewed, most generic looking power supplies like that however are not very quality. Personally I wouldn't use it.

    Why would you get a 7 year old?? A Geforce GTX 750 might not be a bad fit that machine.

    I wouldn't use any gaming class GPU with that PSU.

    On paper the PSU should work, in reality who knows...it's old and of unknown quality so who knows how accurate the ratings even are.

    Be aware that if you are buying a used one then you shouldn't be asking how reliable it will be, a 7 year old GPU will be worn out and most of the GPU's in those series don't last that long; not after years of heat torture.
