Hi:

 

it's possible the card will work.

 

It appears to have a power draw of 65W, and a recommended power supply of 250W, which is only 10W more than what you have now.

I have a Nvidia GT1030  low profile card in my HP 8200 Elite CMT and that works fine.

 

I has about the same release date as the AMD Radeon Pro WX 3100.

 

It is not as powerful a card though.  It only draws 30 Watts.

Not a problem, but unfortunately, I can't answer that question, because I don't use my PC for playing video games.

 

Google it.  I found this video for example...

 

GT 1030 Fortnite Performance Mode | Arena Low Settings 1080p - YouTube
