So i have this pc that's pretty weak, i've decided to upgrade it's graphic card to hd 6570 to atleast play skyrim

Here are the detailed spec:
slim tower Lenovo h330
i3-3100 processor
AMD Radeon hd 6450
4gb RAM
180watt power supply

Will an AMD Radeon 6570 be able to run on my desktop

(it has a smaller x16 slot than standard, people say it requires a low profile card)

That's the spec of the pc, mine is the one with 180w psu variant, if that helps in any way.

Do you expect that the card can be OC'ed? IF yes, then get an branded 350-450 watt PSU now. With that even the 660 Ti can be run on.

It's probably going to struggle in Skyrim even with a 6570...

Looks like a workstation kind of PC, not meant for gaming. Also 180w is dangerously low for a more powerful graphics card.
