I'd suggest a GTX 750Ti......power requirement is 300 watts and with your Antec 450 your good to go.

GeForce GTX 750 Ti | Specifications | GeForce

EVGA GeForce GTX 750 Ti 02G-P4-3751-KR G-SYNC Support 2GB Video Card - Newegg.com

ALL PC's bottleneck. In this case, it's a non issue. Internet and office apps don't need any serious cpu usage or gpu. That's why motherboards with onboard graphics are so popular.

Why not get something like a GTX 560-650 (non TI) or an older HD 5750 - something like that. Those are easy to get used and work well with windows 10. If it's 2d or simple facebook type games you mom is playing onboard will work.
