Vostro 270MT, advice please re graphics upgrade

Hello

My son has a Vostro 270 Mini Tower with an i5 processor running Windows 10. He’s finding his games are lagging a lot. The graphics card is a Nvidia GT 620. We put in 16GB of RAM. Now we want to upgrade the graphics card. I’m thinking of this one:

Zotac GeForce GTX 1060 1152 NVIDIA CUDA Cores Mini 3 GB GDDR5 Graphics Card

It’s a mini card so I hope it’s more likely to fit in the mini tower chassis.

Could anyone please confirm if this would be compatible with the PC?

And it says the recommended power supply would be 400w, whereas we just have 300w now. Is there a particular kind I should buy? This one seems good value, would it be the right kind?

Corsair CP-9020097-UK VS Series ATX/EPS 80 PLUS Power Supply Unit, 550 W

Any advice gratefully appreciated!

Thanks very much, I looked at that thread and I assume it means the power supply I've chosen would be OK!

If someone could confirm that the graphics card would fit, that would be great!
