The stock power supply can handle a 75W card. The card however must not be longer than 8.4 inches.


Nvidia GeForce GT 740  19W TDP
993 MHz /5,000 MHz
2 GB GDDR5  80 GB/s
31.8 GTexel/s
SMX units     3
ROPS                      16

VS

Nvidia GeForce GT 720   64W TDP
967 MHz/1,800 MHz
1 GB DDR3  14.4 GB/s
15.5 GTexel/s
SMX units     1
ROPS                         8

ASUS GT740-2GD3-CSM  would work fine.

980 is a non starter.  Won't physically fit into the case.

There are 8 inch long GTX 970's but those require an updated power supply like EVGA NEX 750B1   120-PB-0750-KR

10 to 12 inch cards do not physically fit into the case.
