Vostro 3470 GPU compatibility

I have a Vostro 3470. I wanted to know if GTX 1650 low profile and GT 1030 or 1050 would be compatible with the pc

The Vostro 3470 with 200w power supply can support a 30w GT 1030 but it does not meet power requirements to support 75w GTX 1650 or 75w GTX 1050.

Review this YT video for upgrade process

Unfortunately you can only install a thin heatsink single slot width card in slot2 PCIex16 slot of V3470 because the psu is right underneath the slot (and you cannot install in slot1 above slot2 b/c slot1 has a closed end).  This means only low height GT1030 with a low profile heatsink may fit.  If you are okay w moving psu outside case then gtx 1050/1650 are possible.

psu can be upgraded upwards to 240/260w Dell oem from the Optiplex series or you can use standard psu w 24-6 adapter.  psu calculator shows a 240w is adequate for 1050/1650.  concur w chino that the stock 200w psu is a bit under.
