I just bought an Optiplex 760 mini-tower. I was planning to purchase a ATI 5770 1Gb before which I borrowed an NVidia 8600 to try it and I realized that the Graphic card wont fit as it 5 inches wide and the slot width is only 3 Inches (the Steel plate at the VGA output). and the next problem is the Dell power supply is only of 255W.

Please Help...

Well, you're not going to find a very powerful low-profile GPU. Here's an option:

SAPPHIRE 100293DP Radeon HD 5570 1GB 128-bit DDR3 PCI Express 2.1 x16 HDCP Ready CrossFireX Support Low Profile Ready Video Card w/ Eyefinity - Retail $86.99

Here's another option, but I don't know if the length will work. I also have my doubts about that POS Dell power supply powering anything more powerful that what came in the system.

Galaxy 96GFF6HVDCXX GeForce 9600 GT 512MB 256-bit DDR3 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready Low Profile Ready Video Card - Retail $107.99 - $30 MIR

Here's a cheaper, smaller 9600GT.

ZOTAC ZT-96TES3L-FSL GeForce 9600 GT 512MB 256-bit GDDR3 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready Low Profile Ready Video Card - Retail $84.99

Thanks a ton...

I would like to know whether there can be any other solutions... such as changing Cabinet / Power supply as i am ready to invest more if worth it...
