That's a Dell Optiplex 390. Your main size restriction is going to be the size of the cooler on the card, and the length of the card. Try to get measurements of the distance between the CPU cooler and the Power Supply, and then the distance between the back of the case where the brackets mount to the front of the case. Based on just eyeballing what I see, I recommend this one.
This card will give you basic gpu acceleration and it's capable of running some games too.

After googling the x6630g, you will need a single bracket and low profile card that does not need any external power connectors. This seriously limits your options as most of these cards are not made with gaming in mind.
Based off of this, the best I could find that would work is this gt 1030. https://www.amazon.com/GIGABYTE-GeForce-GV-N1030D5-2GL-Computer-Graphics/dp/B071DY2VJR/?tag=akshatblog198-20

I agree with the SSD, but I am not going to try to tell you I would know how to image the OS to it. I have no clue.
When I built my PC about 4 years ago I made sure I had a dedicated SSD for the OS and you're right, it's amazing. My PC boots up completely in about 16 seconds. I also have a dedicated SSD for gaming, and I use a 2tb seagate for movies, music, and things like open office and such.
DDR3, gotcha! That's what I figured.
I found a card I may go with based on others suggestions, tell me what you think.
Looking through the reviews it seems people are using it for this exact purposes and it work s great.

The GT 1030 is a low-profile card that can run Roblox at 60 FPS on any settings and has an HDMI output. Amazon has it for $85.
Bonus: If your kid gets bit by the Fortnite bug in a few years, it should be able to handle that at Medium settings too.

There are definitely some hopes of upgrading it then. It's a little more tricky with the thin ones but you will definitely be able to run some games if it gets upgraded.
What is your budget? This will drastically change what parts you should buy.
Definitely get a gpu though because the optiplex you have probably doesn't have one.
This is probably the best one that you can get that will fit.

if it can handle a 65 watt gpu then it should also handle a 75 watt gpu. i think the 1650 is the most powerful card you can put in it. A 1050 ti is weaker but also a bit cheaper, that's another option. In terms of compatibility, the metal thing on the back of the gpu is a bit wider on the 1650 than on yours. this one https://www.amazon.com/GIGABYTE-GeForce-GV-N1030D5-2GL-Computer-Graphics/dp/B071DY2VJR looks more like yours. (the 1030 is really weak though) but i think all you have to do is remove a metal thing at the back of your optiplex case. Beyond that, those optiplexes are weird. those dell motherboards aren't standard and a new gpu might just not work. it's hard to predict though. it should work but it's entirely possible it just won't for no apparent reason. so i would buy from a place where you can return the card if it doesn't work. for example if it's sold by amazon they will accept returns within 30 days. (it has to be sold and shipped by amazon, not some third party seller)

yeah I keep thinking I should probably go with an Optiplex 9020 since they have an I5. I have one of those running my fighting game cab and it runs everything great. Even have DragonBall Fighterz on it. Was just seeing if I could avoid spending the extra money.
This is the graphics card I have in my 9020 https://www.amazon.com/gp/aw/d/B071DY2VJR?psc=1&ref=ppx_pop_mob_b_asin_title

Is it worth it to put a higher end one in my old machine though? Wont it get worn out getting used now before I upgrade?
Is this the one youre talking about? https://www.amazon.com/GIGABYTE-GeForce-GV-N1030D5-2GL-Computer-Graphics/dp/B071DY2VJR
Somewhat related question:
If a game I am trying to play has memory leak issues, will getting ANY graphics card help remedy that? From what I understand, when you have integrated graphics your RAM and CPU process the graphics. So my thought process is getting any graphics card will help that memory leak issue because a GPU will then be processing the graphics.

I've got an old Dell SFF PC that I put a GT 1030 2 GB GDDR5 in. Low profile, with fan, and draws very little power. They are around $80 to $120 here in Canada. I actually played Fallout 4 on it at 1600 x 900 with great fps. Even GTA V on high.
I would also recommend upgrading to an i5 2500. You get 2.5 x the performance from that i3-2100 and they are around $30 on ebay etc.

Looking at the specs of your pre-built, I think you'd do best with a new graphics card. Since you're only looking for a small performance increase, and that power supply doesn't have the correct connections for a beefy GPU, a discrete GPU is your best bet. "Discrete" = doesn't need a separate power connection
Great, cheap discrete GPU that will get you to \~100+ FPS -https://www.amazon.com/GIGABYTE-GeForce-GV-N1030D5-2GL-Computer-Graphics/dp/B071DY2VJR/ref=sr_1_8?dchild=1&keywords=1650&qid=1606773943&sr=8-8

You could probably get:
-q6600 or something like that \~10$
-8gb ddr2 800 4x2gb \~20$
-a gt 1030 low profile \~80$
-240gb ssd \~40$ not 'needed' but highly recommended
\^only example links- you would want to find something closer to you.
It all depends on what youre willing to spend on the pc. That cpu should be able to work with the mobo(just did a quick search pretty sure it should work but theres a chance it wouldnt) and also what wattage is the psu in it?
If you are willing to spend extra (have the budget) the best option would be upgrading to a whole new pc like a optiplex 9020 with 8gb ram and a 4th gen i5 for about(like this) \~150$ and then getting some kind of an lower power gpu from local markets or ebay.

People play on PC builds ? Damn I bought a lame old computer and upgraded it with a graphics card.
You had to also get yourself a HDMI cord and a WiFi port cause that one didn't come with it.. https://www.amazon.com/gp/aw/d/B075R3WP25?psc=1&ref=ppx_pop_mob_b_asin_title

I own the exact computer. Based on my research, the best GPU that fits is a GTX 1030. This is the one I use Gigabyte GeForce GT 1030 https://www.amazon.com/dp/B071DY2VJR?ref=ppx_pop_mob_ap_share
You do need to metal cut the back panel a little bit so nothing bends. As always, be sure to install the latest driver.
Also, you need a ram upgrade. Two of these sticks works for me. Patriot Signature 8GB DIMM DDR3... https://www.amazon.com/dp/B007HILOWG?ref=ppx_pop_mob_ap_share
As for keyboard and mouse, this is some starter gear. https://www.amazon.com/dp/B00NLZUM36/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_apa_i_NL0lFbG9G6XY9
I think all this came out to around $210 USD. I'd love to know if this helps. Happy gaming mate.

but i also found this low profile card
which would be better for my system, and can it even handle either?

For the Optiplex 9020 SFF, there are two PCIE slots. The "top" one is a x4 slot with an open back (you can put a x16 card in this if desired). The bottom one is a normal x16 slot:
The x16 slot is connected directly to the CPU, the x4 slot likely connects through the chipset (slower). It's also possible the x4 slot may not be able to deliver as much power as the x16.
The PSU is adjacent to the x16 slot, limiting how wide your card can be (heatsink height).
So for the cards you can use:
- x16: Any half-height (low profile), single slot card
- x4: Any half-height (low profile), single/dual slot card
This is a low profile single slot card: https://www.amazon.com/dp/B071DY2VJR/ref=psdc_284822_t3_B06WWLWWJM
This is a low profile dual slot card: https://www.amazon.com/Gigabyte-Geforce-Profile-Graphic-GV-N105TOC-4GL/dp/B06WWLWWJM?th=1
(Note - both the above links have pictures showing "full height" brackets installed, with a half-height bracket included in the box)

I am trying to upgrade my GPU in order to be able to play Escape from Tarkov. My rig is 9 years old, and I'm trying to hopefully find something slightly updated and <$100.

Here are two GPUs I was considering. Anyone have a suggestion? Should I get the cheaper card and then maybe more RAM?

> I've never heard a better excuse to buy a thread ripper.
Haha! When I was putting together my new build, I'd looked at Threadripper as I was coming from the Intel X99 HeDT platform, and was spoiled by things like quad channel memory and a plethora of PCI-e lanes to use, but for my new build, because of the exorbitant cost of sTRX4/TRX40 Motherboards, not to mention the CPU's, so I went AM4 grudgingly. 🤣
So, my new gaming/workstation editing rig is as follows. (re-using the 2x WD RED PRO 6 TB [in RAID 1 for my most important items], the 2x Samsung 850 PRO 256 GB SSDs [scratch disks], and the Dell U3415W all from my previous build). Also, I included sales tax where applicable so that's why the prices are a bit higher.

> Edit: I just wanted to mention that if you're going to go with a 6c/12t you might want to pass on the 3600x for a 3600. The price difference is huge right now for the marginal performance increase. You could even go for a 1600, but the difference there is more substantial for only saving you $50.
> Considering you've got such a substantial library of 4k content you probably do enough video editing to justify a high end CPU. If you're going to spring for a 3600x I'd go a bit further and pick up the 3700x. The price different is relatively small for the additional processing power. Most people don't really have a workload to justify it, but you seem to.
Yeah, I can agree with that. If I go the 3600 route, the non-X variant sounds like a better deal for not much trade off, so it'll probably be between a 3600 or a 3700X, depending on my final budget and the prices at the time. Although, if I wait a bit, I may go with the new 3600XT that is being released soon, depending upon price of course.
> A threadripper is very likely overkill when you factor in motherboard prices. You probably don't need the quad channel RAM either. But, you might want to seriously consider the 3900x and the 3950x. The 3800x isn't a great value proposition, but the 3900x is basically 50% more money for 50% more threads when compared to the 3700x. If $150 bucks for another 4c/8t makes sense once you might want to do it again and bump up to the 3950x, but you're losing some performance per core at that point.
Funny you should mention that... lol - referencing my rig above. However, my biggest goal was to get PLEX, OMBI, Tautulli, SabNZBD, Radarr, Sonarr, etc. off of my main rig and have a separate server for all of that workload as it was a pain trying to work around users using PLEX etc. when I needed to do things on the PC like restarts, updates, etc. plus it would affect my gaming/working by using system resources as well.
So, that's my main reason for this second build for my media server setup. I'd even went with the Phanteks Enthoo 719, a.k.a. LUXE 2, (fantastic case btw.) in hopes that I could do a mini-itx build for the server and have them both in the same box, running off of a single PSU, but due to some of the bad reviews about the Phanteks Revolt X PSU, and issues that it has, I don't think that will be possible unfortunately. 😪
> On a bit of a tangent here, I think you made the right call going for the golds over the reds. WD has been doing sketchy stuff with SMR on some of their drives. To the best of my knowledge they've only been doing it in the lower capacity reds, but it speaks to their mindset regarding what they're designing them for. The golds are where it is at.
Yeah, I had read about that WD's shady practice regarding SMR on the lower capacity RED HDDs, but I don't think they affected the RED PRO's, plus all my current 4 TB RED PROs are from 2015 so I believe that was prior to the onset of this scandal. Mainly, I went with the WD Gold's because the 12 TB model is $359/ea. and the same 12 TB RED PRO is $419/ea. (they were closer to $450 last week or the week before!). I just wanted the most economical drive that was reliable and came with a 5-year warranty as it came in handy for one or two of my 4 TB RED PROs during the past 5 years. However, you're right in saying that Golds are the way to go.
Last thing. Whatever I decide to do, I did figure out an answer to my original question, and went with a Gigabyte GeForce GT 1030 GV-N1030D5-2GL Low Profile 2G Computer Graphics Card for the GPU on whatever I decide to do. which looks like I'll be able to make some cash from picking up as my Sapphire Radeon Vapor-X R9 290X is selling anywhere between $180 and $250 used on eBay. So, hey! There's the cash for the better CPU! 🤣🤣
