Question Planning to add this specific GPU and I'm not sure if it will fit. Can you guys tell by looking at the photo?

Do you think a GT 730 will fit on this case??

Also this PC has 220w power supply.

AMD Athlon X2 220 dual-core
8GB dual chan. RAM
SSD + HDD *no optical drive

And planning to add that specific GPU.. do you think it can still handle that??

Which specific card? Looks like that prebuilt only takes low profile cards, so make sure it's low profile, and is 1 slot wide.

The two capacitors near the slot may be an issue though
Isn't the graphics card fan going through left hand side? It seems to me that it would hit the ceiling if so. Also I'm planning to get GT 1030, and I'm hoping that my 220w power supply can still take it. Anyways, thanks for the reply!

Yeah sorry I meant the capacitors between the slot and the end of the case, not the ones behind the slot.
It should be fine. A 220W psu can definitely handle a 1030, as it only draws 25W. But since the case is a small form factor you have to use a low profile card, like this: https://www.amazon.com/GIGABYTE-GeForce-GV-N1030D5-2GL-Computer-Graphics/dp/B071DY2VJR
I actually ran that card for a year in my own prebuilt (which had a 240W psu, by the way) and it worked great.

Yeah bro, I'm getting one like that but I'm looking for like $40 gt 1030😅. I dunno seems like the space above that slot is pretty slim for the fans of the gpu

The card is low profile so no part of it protrudes farther than a low profile bracket would. The pictures show the card with the regular bracket installed, not the low profile bracket. It will fit fine. Can you link the card you're looking at?
