Thank you for the additional information, @Big-P!

 

Here is a small, but powerful, video card that should fit nicely into your case and work with the 300W PSU: https://www.newegg.com/msi-geforce-gtx-1050-ti-gtx-1050-ti-4g-oc/p/N82E16814137056

 

It has the HDMI 1.2 port that you wanted, but it also has a DisplayPort which is higher resolution if you ever need it.  The video slot on your motherboard is PCI Express 2.0 x16 and the card is PCI Express 3.0.  It is backward compatible.  The card is not a barn-burner, but since you don't game it will be more than sufficient.

 

You should read the Customer Reviews to see what they have to say about it.

 

Good luck!

@Big-P , welcome to the forum.

 

When you ordered the computer in 2013, you had the option of choosing a 300W or 460W power supply unit (PSU).  Which one did you choose?  It will make a difference of which video cards you can use without upgrading the PSU.  Also, how do you want to use the computer; gaming, browsing, etc.?

Thanks for the welcome.  I am afraid I don't remember the selection for choosing a 300W or 460W power supply unit (PSU).  Can I find this info on the unit itself?  The computer is mostly used for work and light browsing.

You are welcome, @Big-P!

 

Yes, you may be able to see the wattage if you look at the back of the computer where the cord plugs into the power supply unit (PSU).  If not, you will have to open the side panel to see the information on the label.
