Hello.
Your link is broken and I cannot see the product,
You can't go wrong with a GT630GDDR5 or with 6670DDR3.

If you don't have 1 PCI-E pin then go for 7750 which is the only way I guess.

Edit: I found your PC: HP Pavilion Slimline s5120y Desktop PC Product Specifications

Edit2: I can see it has only a 220Watt PSU without PCI-E connectors.

Edit3: Although from Motherboard Specifications, M2N68-LA (Narra5) I can't see any limitation that could bring to the case (I mean that the mobo has to fit right? Then where is the problem of placing a dual slot card???) there is one GPU that you might actually use:
XFX FX-775A-ZNP4 Radeon HD 7750 Core Edition 1GB 128-bit GDDR5 $104.99

With a slimline computer you need to get a low profile graphics card. You will not get very good FPS on high settings with that computer. You will probably be best off at medium settings.

You won't be able to run anything with that crappy 250W power supply. Also, your CPU is too weak and will bottleneck any card you use. You're going to have to start from scratch. Slimline computers are not for gaming, they're for computer-illiterate people to check email and play farmville.

He just wants to run games like LOL.
So for LOL lets have a look at Tom's Hardware article:

Seeing that a dual-core Athlon II X2 260 manages to stay above 90 FPS at all times, it's a safe bet that LoL players don't have much to worry about as far as processor-based limitations are concerned. Any dual-core CPU above 2 GHz is probably a safe bet for smooth frame rates.


So I think with his CPU is fine. The major problem is his PSU. But As you can see at Tom's Hardware Power Consumption Load 7750 needs only 50watt.
Now I don't see how the rest of his system will consume more than 170watt...
The system will reach maximum (Total system without GPU: 170 + 7750: 50=)220watt worst case scenario. Guru3D
