You need an UEFI enabled, low profile, low wattage graphics card with a full size bracket. Sometimes graphics cards are shipped with both brackets. Your PC only has a 270 watt power supply so your pickins will be limited.
I have seen some cards that might work but the graphics card manufacturer's all recommend a bigger power supply.
A higher wattage Slimline power supply from Athena might work in your PC.
You can use GPU-Z to determine the performance (memory bandwidth) as a place to start from when looking for a graphics card.
