  1. The only size concern with the mini tower, not sff or dt, is length. You don't want one of those long, dual fan cards. In your situation that doesn't matter, since the 1030 is a small card.
  2. make sure you get the one with ddr5 memory

  4. But if I pick one of these cards from any brand would they all fit into the slot with no issues
  5. Yes, that's a standard slot, ALL pci-ex videocards will fit in it. The thing that might have been an issue is physical size. Not all cards are the same height or length. Some take up more space which might be a problem if someone's case didn't have room. As it happens, the 1030 is a physically small card so you don't have to worry about it.
