XPS 8700, video card upgrade, GTX 745 to GTX 1060

I am contemplating upgrading a Dell XPS 8700 i7 4th generation from a GTX 745 to a GTX 1060 6G.

Two questions;

Will the motherboard support a low-profile card?

Where can I find the 6 or 8 pin connector that must be plugged in to the card? Is it hidden behind the power supply?

Thank you in advance, any answers are appreciated.

Re: upgrading GPU

There should be two 6-pin connectors attached to the power supply -- this system is 4-5 years old, and may not have an 8-pin connector.  That's a more recent development.

therealsimpsons,

Just curious. You asked, "Will the motherboard support a low-profile card?", yet you mention upgrading to the GTX 1060 which is a full height video card?
