Yes, I found some diagrams online that say it has 2 pci e 16x lanes

Although just to be sure, could you take a photo of the motherboard?

To do so, upload it to imgur and then post the link here

That case pretty much requires a single slot/low profile gpu. Inno3d and Zotac make ones that'll fit and don't require external power.

Standard 2 slot cards won't fit, or ones that do have such little space for air they overheat in seconds.

Any gpu is quite expensive right now. Scalpers, miners are grabbing all the higher grade gpus, forcing consumers to hunt around for whatever they can get for a temporary. Chinese New years lasts a month, so silicon production is down, covid forced factory temporary closings, the auto industry, Playstation and others also need that silicon so it's spread very thin and contracts need to be met, so prebuilts like Dell and HP and CyberPowerPC often get gpus before anything available to the public.

Many ppl are going to pawn shops and other second hand stores and if it's got a gpu, buying the whole pc just because it has one and is cheaper than trying to get a gpu alone from a scalper.
