Want to upgrade from the Intel HD 530 (I5-6500) without changing the power supply.
Looking for a single-slot low-profile Graphics Card for a M900 SFF. Not a gamer and do not need 4K video.
These seem to be the options so far:
NVIDIA Quadro K420 1GB DDR3
AMD Radeon R7 250 2GB DDR3
NVIDIA GeForce GT720 1GB DDR5
AMD Radeon HD 7570 1GB DDR5
Mod: edited the Subject line to clarify the question

I'd suggest a card with DDR5 memory, as it on GT 730 and GT 1030 (these are the two I have read test data on) makes for twice the performance of versions with DDR3.

I didn't explain myself well, my point was out of the 4 cards you listed, the 2 with DDR5 probably have considerable performance advantage over the other 2 because of the faster memory.
Also, be aware that Lenovo cards tend to have dual DisplayPort, and unless you are connecting to monitors with DP, it's an added expense to buy quality adapters to convert to the video port you need.

Yes, I got the card on eBay for $42 shipped.
It should be a huge improvement over the i5-6500 HD 530 onboard graphics.
Don't care about 4K or gaming.
