Hi, my computer is a Dell OptiPlex 745 SFF (Small Form Factor), but the problem is the graphics really sucks on it, I have upgraded my processor and Ram which are now suitable for my games which is really The Sims 3 since I am a massive Sims fan but I have found the right Graphics Card for the pc which is a Asus Geforce GT210 1GB graphics card but I need to know whether it can properly fit in the Dell computer that I am using. Due to it's lack of space inside the motherboard, there is only one Graphics card slot to fit in and it is too close to the hard drive, but if anyone knows whether it fits or not or if anyone has had success with it or not, here is the graphics card I am using: http://www.asus.com/Graphics_Cards/2101GD3L/gallery/

My PC Specs:

Dell OptiPlex 745 SFF (Small Form Factor)
Intel Core 2 Duo Processor E6600 - 2.40Ghz
4GB DDR2 800mhz Ram
OS: Windows 8.1 Pro 64bit
Hard Drive: 250gb Sata

Thanks!

P.S: If the graphics card does not fit can anyone recommend me a graphics card that will fit this computer, thanks!

You will need a GPU that specifically states it is low profile and includes a low profile bracket. I think the best one they make is an HD7750 (I'm not sure if its still made). Also keep in mind that using the low profile bracket sometimes means you disconnect and remove the VGA port.
Take a look thru these on Newegg. You might consider the asus 610 as its more powerfull than the 210 but neither one is a "Gaming Class" card.

I just need one that will play The Sims smoothly but not on High settings and play videos in good quality, I took a look on Newegg and I also took a look on Amazon and this is the only one in my price range http://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/B008BFWBZ8/ref=ox_sc...
I took a look on GameDebate and it says the graphics will run fine with my Sims games. I already have a low profile bracket with one that has a DVI and HDMI slot and one with a VGA slot and the GT210 does say that it's low profile. With a GT610 I did actually buy that graphics card a few months ago but when it came, it was fully compatible but the size did not fit inside, so that's why I am considering this graphics card by the looks and reviews it has had to work completely on this Dell computer but thanks for the info, it helped!
