Hello,

 

You can run a GTX 1060. You will have to upgrade the power supply to a 400 Watt or more unit.

 

The GTX 1060 comes in about a 4.5 inch length or about a 10.5 inch length and is dual slot. You have to check the graphics card will fit in the PC. Same with a new power supply. You could not install an 800 watt PS as it would not fit but a 500 or 550 model should fit in there. Measure, measure, measure!  The new power supply must have 6 or 8 pin PCIe connectors to provide power to the new card. 

 

Your CPU will be a bottleneck on some games.
