@Cephachrome, welcome to the forum.

 

There are several things that you have to consider when buying a video card: 1) length of the card.  Will it fit into the space, 2) power required to run it properly and 3) does it require supplemental power adapters?  Either of the video cards in the links provided will require you to upgrade the power supply unit (PSU), also.  The PSU in the computer is only 180W.  I would recommend the GTX 1050.  It has more onboard memory.  You will have to go to the manufacturer's website to determine how much power that it requires.  I suggest a PSU with at least 500W.  You should read the Customer Reviews to see what users have to say about both of the cards.

 

Q: And can i also add the graphics cards above in thic pc. 

 

A: Yes, the PCI Express slot is directly below the two cables.  You should use the same logic as described in my post.

Thank you for the additional information, @Cephachrome.

 

The 75W is the amount of power provided by the PCIx x16 slot on the motherboard.  This means that there is no supplemental power adapter required on the PSU.  However, as I suggested, a 500W  PSU would be good.  This will assure that you have plenty of power for peak needs.  I like Corsair products.  They provide clean, stable, power for the entire system.  Also, a modular PSU is good for small cases.  It will allow you to only use the cables that are absolutely necessary.  Here is a PSU that will work for you.  Read the Customer Reviews to see what users have to say about it.  Before you buy it you should measure the space in the case where the current PSU is installed and compare the measurements to the new PSU.

I would recommend a 600w power supply to run the GTX 1050 on your desktop.
