I say good read since I'm assuming that the PSU that came with your Dell OptiPlex prebuilt sff system is the 180W unit. Even if you did replace the unit with a 240W variant, you still wouldn't be able to drop in a capable discrete GPU for gaming. If you manage to get a harness meant for your motherboard then get a higher wattage aftermarket unit and then have it outside the case(since the case won't accept anything larger than what it already has) you would need to look into a 2 slot low profile(due to the size of your chassis) discrete GPU which is also either hard to find or non existent.

In 2022 I can't suggest a GT1030 either.
