Hi,

Yes, it is possible, but could be a bit complicated.

The 300S by default supports GPU up to GT720, which is rated at 19W only. Every GPU above it will draw more power. Technically you could use up to 1050Ti GPU, but you'll need to meet ALL of the requirements below:

  • your new GPU has to be low profile card. The best GPU available in LP (low profile) as of now is 1050Ti. Please note you need to specifically ask for an LP card. Most 1050Ti are not LP. Other cards that are available in LP form factor are 1050, 950, 750, 750Ti, AMD RX560
  • You need a graphics card that does not require a PCI-E 6/8pin power plug. Alternatively you'd need a SATA power to 6/8pin PCI-E adapter
  • Your power supply has to be able to handle it. I can't find what the default power supply is rated at, but I found another topic (linked below) that claims that you should have a 250W power supply for a card faster than GT730

Yes, but you should avoid this card. It is outdated and offers very little performance gain over the integrated GPU you already have.
