Thank you for the additional information, @JBunton23!  This is exactly what I needed.

 

Here is the Maintenance and Service Guide for the computer.  In Chapter 3, Illustrated parts catalog, in the section titled "Misc boards", Page 26, is a list of compatible video cards.  The problem that you will have with upgrading to a retail version is the power supply unit (PSU).  It is only 240W and the newer cards require a minimum of 300W to 400W to operate properly.  It is difficult to upgrade the PSU in your computer.  I believe that it has a 4-pin power connector.

@JBunton23 , welcome to the forum.

 

Which version is your workstation -- Desktop mini, Ultra-slim PC, Tower or Small Form Factor?  This will make a difference in the type of video card you can use.

So does it mean I could try to add a new graphics card but it might not work?
