Hello,
I have an old OptiPlex 990 SFF PC and my sister needs a PC quick on the budget. I'm thinking of getting a low profile GTX 1050, but I don't know if the 240W PSU.
Here are the links for both the computer and the GPU.

It'll probably work but not good for the long run. Taxing a TFX PSU with that space constraint is not good. You can underclock the CPU and the GPU if you want to be safe.

And... getting a regular PSU is already hard, let alone a good TFX PSU.

No....
You should get at least something of 350+ Range (Quality PSU)
400W is the sweet spot... (maybe someting like Seasonic SSP-300SUB but at least 350W
)..
The card minimum is 300W (for the whole system)...
240W is enough only for CPU and integrated graphics and some peripherals nothing more.

But, this is an SFF system. The power supply is proprietary.
