First we need to know which Optiplex 960 you have, there are 3 models



From left to right first I list name and in () I list abbreviation - left is Mini Tower (MT), middle is Desktop (DT), and right is Small Form Factor (SFF).
Space inside is cramped as noticed by wa1 correctly, thanks for the picture, this picture of MT, DT is worse for upgrading and SFF is the bad.
Power supply.
Power
DC power supply:

Power Mini Tower — 305 W (standard); 255 W (EPA)
Desktop — 255 W (standard or EPA)
Small Form Factor — 235 W (standard or EPA)
Current
consumption
Mini Tower — 3.6 A/1.8 A
Desktop — 4.0 A/2.0 A
Small Form Factor — 3.5 A/1.8 A
Coin-cell battery 3 V CR2032 lithium coin cell

So, now first identify your form factor, next we will advise you!

Hi Kisianik

Hi Stryker13799
Sorry for "re-opening" this threat, but there is a lot useful information provided by Kisianik

Does the 7770 work for you ?
Did you had to upgrade the Power Supply ? (I don't want to do this)

I am in the same situation as you, having 2 desktops
Optiplex 755 Mini-tower
Optiplex 960 Desktop

Currently having a Radeon HD 5450 (optiplex 960) and got used to the low performance with new Games
I wanted to buy the 7750 (for the optiplex 960) but then i got informed about the 7770 and GTX 650 (both are faster)

So now I have found 3 low power cards

Radeon HD 7750 (55 watt)
GeForce GTX 650 (64 watt)
Radeon HD 7770 (80 watt)

Does the 7770 fit into the 755 and 960 ? without replacing the power supply ?

thank you
