Low profile half height HDMI graphic card

I wish to add a graphic card with a DVI output to a Dell Optiplex 755 Desktop model. It has a PCIe x16 Slot and I am not sure if I can or cannot use a card that needs auxiliary power supply.

Here are the maximum allowable dimensions:
Height inches/centimeters: 2.731 / 6.89
Length inches/centimeters: 6.6 / 16.765

I would be grateful for your support!

    Thanks mousemonkey.

    This card fits all right but Minimum System Power Requirement is 300 W.

    The sticker on the power supply unit notes: Maximum continues total DC output power shall not exceed 275W and there are no spare cables...

    What would be a suitable alternative if I cannot use auxiliary power and may not be able to use this card?

    With a Dell PSU you will probably be able to get away with it, 300w is about the minimum across across the board.
