Hi there. Just received this kind of computer for the very first time. This is Lenovo ThinkCentre M91P made in late 2011. At the moment it has:
i5-2500S 2.5 4 cores CPU
12GB DDR3 RAM (I use 1600 Mhz instead of 1333 Mhz. Works fine)
256 SSD SanDisk
180W external power supply
NO VIDEO CARD
Computer size: 270mm x 240mm x 80mm
I have no idea what kind of video card fits. I browsed the internet and found out that it supposed to be a card called LOW PROFILE card. But these are so different from each other. I have a doubt if this old motherboard can still support any new video card at all.
Below I leave a link to 1a.lt store, so maybe someone of you could point me some examples.
And probably I will need some more powerful power supply.
I would like to be able to play average games like GTA5.
*** Also I'm wondering if this card could fit:

Based on the size and that it has an external power supply (like a laptop power brick), it's a "M91p Eco Ultra Small" system. And according to the specs, the PCI slot is: Low Profile, 32-bit PCI 2.3 (most likely used for a WiFi card), and not a PCIe x16 slot used for graphics card. No other graphics option was listed besides the internal Intel graphics.
