2 Graphics Cards in Dell optiplex 7010 MT

Hi there,

I have a Optiplex 7010MT with a new power supply. It is possible to install 2 pci-e graphics cards? The socket second socket it there but can I use that one for a second graphic card?

Yes and no.  The black PCIe according to the manual is 'wired' as a 4x and not a 16x so if the machine will allow you to put in a graphics card and run it, it will only be about 25 percent useful.

okay this answer is enough for me. I need it only to wire more monitors. I don't need the "power" of the cards

Thank you. Is the board a normal atx form factor so that I can put it in an other case?

I'm not exactally sure.  Sometimes Dell uses custom form factors and sometimes they do not.  Its also possible the mount points of the motherboard would be different even if the size of the board is 'standard'.  On top of that, you may run into the pinouts on the motherboard being different then what is in the case.
