In general small form factor PCs are not designed for gaming. Gaming requires a lot of processing speed, graphics capabilities, and power. Running games makes the PC work harder and this generates a lot of heat. SFF PCs don't have a lot of fans or ways to remove heat quickly from the PC. That's why this is more of a Business PC.
To make this PC better for games (and depending on the game), you may need more than just a processor upgrade.
To see what options your PC has, here are the specifications you can use to compare to any hardware you are looking to buy:
I hope this helps. I'm sorry I don't have a good quick recommendation for you on the processor.

I do not mean big Games
Only games simple and Computer Speed
I've upgrade the graphics card to nvidia geforce 610 GT 1GB
And I can upgrade motherboard and processor and RAM and hard disk.
i Only needed to motherboard compatible with dc7100 SFF and supports best processors so I can upgrade the processor ...

The processor yu want to buy for your dc7100 SFF will absolutely not work.
Below is the link to the quickspecs for your model. See page 5 for the list of supported processors.
Only the Pentium 4 processors listed will work and I do not recommend upgrading past the Pentium 4 650 due to the excess heat that will be generated by the higher wattage processors.
