Its clear in the spec sheet.
the SFF has (1) 75 watt pcie 16.
while the mini tower has (2) pcie 16.
Just to make it clear. It is standardized for pcie 16 primary slots to have a minimum of 75 watts to power the total of 16 lanes.
This is standard there is no arguing that fact.
Graphics cards having a capacity over 75watts require jumpers from the power supply.
common practice between graphics card makers and computer manufacturers.
its only on secondary pcie 16 which are typically in white or reversed on the mother board that dont require the 75watt minimum standard format.

If you followed the instructions I gave you from your other post regarding the BIOS update, if the person in the PC shop told you a GT 710 would work, then I would go with that one.
It draws less than 20W of power.
I tested out the GT1030 in my 8000 Elite CMT with the latest BIOS update installed, just as an experiment.
I have an AMD Radeon HD 6450 in it now because it was only $10, and I used the more expensive GT 1030 in a newer PC.
I am still surprised it worked in such an old PC with a legacy BIOS.

Anything below a GT 1050, or an RX 460 is a junk graphics card.
All those cards recommended dont support DX12 and even making an attempt to use vulkan will still have windows end up with horrendous results.
If the OP is using windows 10, OP might as well utilize all the drivers and utilities that come with windows 10 and have a well rounded PC.
All those graphics cards suggested score below 5% on user bench mark.

A GT 710 is better than the ancient Intel HD graphics adapter the 8000 Elite comes with.
Even a Radeon HD 6450 is better, and you can get those dirt cheap on eBay all day long.
We're talking about a 11+ year old SFF PC with a 240 W P/S, for heaven's sake.
I would not recommend investing any more than $50 in upgrades on such an outdated platform.

HP SFF with core 2 quad, and EVGA 1030.
i would contact this youtuber. He seems to have it down to a science. 35 FPS on Doom Eternal. Im surprised he was even able to load Doom Eternal on that.
I cant even load doom on my AIO touchsmart.

My only gripe about graphics cards is buy a great graphics card.
Even if its an 11 year old computer. If the mother board takes a dump. Atleast the graphics card can be transferred to something newer with more cpu power in the future.
Buying the least expensive card, is just outdated to windows 10 and 11. Wont perform well under the windows 10 or 11 recommended driver support.
The evga 1030 works its bench marked and handles the power supply
