Ok, you have an old business class HP Compaq dc5700 Small Form Factor PC.
You should also ask on the HP desktop hardware section of the forum since those guys will have more experience with that old model.
I believe your model has a 240w PSU. The GT 9500 general specs show that its recommended to use a 300w min PSU...
I have read where some had claimed the were able to use a 240w PSU, I would say to go with what is recommended.
Problem is, those SFF towers dont take a standard PSU and upgrades are not easily found.
Always get the MFG's specs and compare measurements inside the case to make sure there is enough room when upgrading any PC.
Is this upgrade simply to continue using that PC for work or are you looking to play modern games?
If for modern games, you need to upgrade to a whole new PC (depending).

You have a problem in that the SFF desktop has such a limited power supply and a good basic card requires a 300w PSU.
Plus I dont know if a more modern card will be accepted in that bios.
A GT 9500 is an such an old card also and was weak when it came out.
I would ask in the legacy section of the forum for desktops.
They might have someone with more experience with such an old machine.
Personally, even a cheap modern laptop will have more power to play light duty games than your pc will.
