All 510S-07ICK systems have a GT 730 DDR5 factory option, which uses the same 30w as the GT 1030 DDR5, and can be accommodated by the 180w power supply.  

 

However the case is very small, and the low-profile GT 1030 card will need to be as short as the factory GT 730.  This particular Gigabyte GT 1030 (GV-N1030D5-2GL) is the shortest currently available, and the only way to know if it can fit is, measure the length of the graphics slot from the rear cover plate to bracket that holds the hard and optical drives towards the front of the case, 150mm is needed.

 

Be aware that DDR5 versions of GT 1030 have twice the gaming performance (fps) as the DDR4 versions.  

 

Please let us know if it could fit by measuring, and if you upgrade.  This will help other owners.   

 

 

UPDATE:  The Gigabyte card above does fit in 510S-08IKL, but only just, as seen in this video, however 08IKL uses a somewhat larger case.  Note about this video: I recommend installing a PCIe x4 SSD, such as Samsung 970 Evo Plus, as they are only slightly more costly and have twice the performance.

Did you watch the video I link to above?  You can see where Gigabyte card is positioned in that system, you need the same 150mm on your system.

No.  This Gigabyte (with fan) is one slot wide, it does not intrude at all on the slot or space next to the slot that it is in.  If you asking about the height, it is low-profile (half height), which is what your system, and the one in the video, require.

That Zotac looks to be considerably longer than the Gigabyte.  Did you measure your slot, and compare to the length given in the Zotac specifications?
