@Pav500cp, welcome to the forum.

 

There are two main considerations when deciding on a video card: 1) the length of the card and will it fit into the space provided for it and 2) the amount of power that it takes to run it properly.  You can determine if it will fit by measuring the space from the Back I/O ports to the front of the case where the card will be installed.

 

Here is a GTX 1050 Ti OC that will fit nicely into your computer.  It is manufactured by MSI.  Look at the "Specifications" Tab on the page to see all of the specs for the card.  It says that it should run with your existing 300W power supply unit (PSU).  There are other manufacturers who make the card if you don't like MSI.

Upgraded  to the MSI gtx 1050ti oc (dual fans), aero was sold out and  somehow purchased the single fan version of the msi one but recieved  the dual fan version,  installed it and fitted perfectly, game performance improved greatly! So freaking happy!

 

Thanks for your help guys!
