i have Dell optiplex 980 SFF (small form factor), it has a low profile GTX 710 1GB, i'm not much of a gamer i only play one game and it's PES (pro evolution soccer)
i want to continue playing it on my current pc for the next year or two, so PES 20 will come out soon with GTX 670 2GB as the minimum requirements for it to run at 720p low settings,
and i'm wondering if there is any chance to upgrade my GPU so i can play PES 20 at 720p high settings,
what low profile GPUs to use? or should i just replace the GTX 710 1GB with a 710 2GB? note that my power supply is 235w, much appreciate it.
edit: my cpu is i5 650 3.2GHZ 1st gen

With 235w, your options are limited. You can either buy a new psu, remove the old one and try to wire the cables through that hole (if the computer sits horizontally, not vertically), either get a low wattage card (that is not very powerful, but won't be a huge bottleneck with a dual core cpu). GT 1030 would be the best option; there is a low profile variant of 1050, but I wouldn't risk.

It's pretty difficult to get decent low profile graphics boards. I don't think going to a 2gb 710 would do much. Does your machine have room for a dual slot low profile card or does it need to be single slot low profile?

Go for gt 1030 2gb ddr 5 low profile, or gtx 1050 2gb low profile, or gtx 1050 ti low profile, also what cpu do you have?

Keep in mind all those cards are dual slot low profile cards.

The fastest single slot low profile cards I've found are the Radeon PRO WX 2100 / 3100 cards. They are based on Polaris 10 (same chip as the RX 560) so aren't too bad in games although pricey compared to the gaming card,

Well he can try to modify the case I think, it wont look nice but it will work, right?

If your motherboard has a 24 pin connector (an I think it has), then you can install a standard psu, the probelm is that won't physically fit. How many watts does your psu have? I don't know of there are much more powerful psu's in that format, but your might be enough for a 75w card.
