The site doesn't say anything about it being a Low Profile card which is what you need because its a slim tower BUT it does look like a low profile card because the VGA port is connected via a ribbon. But also has bad reviews.

I would go with this one.

Same model just different maker. I have bought similar ones for clients with no issues. Its fanless so you don't have to worry about the fan going bad and you'll be find on power. It does come with a low profile bracket which you will have to install.
