I provided a solution (in the thread linked to above) days ago. 

 

Your system has the same 180w power supply, your processor is the same 54w, you do not need to change the power supply to run a GT 1030 DDR5.  Most GT 1030 DDR5 cards are low-profile as they are low power 30w cards, there is no advantage for them to be full height cards.   The least powerful Nvidia that does not come in low-profile, is the 120w GTX 1060, which is a far cry from 30w.  However, a full height card is possible in your regular size system, the important criteria is that the card must have DDR5 memory, as the DDR4 versions have half the gaming performance.

 

Additionally, as I wrote in the above linked thread, 8 GB (or more) of system memory is recommended for gamingboth Fortnite and GTA V recommend 8 GB.  As you only have 4 GB, the instant it begins to run out of memory, the system will slow to a crawl.

No problem.  A full height card is possible in your regular size system.
