I went to the current power supply fourm and found out the exact size of it and i found a 600w power supply in the same size (Corsair Builder Series CX 600 Watt ATX/EPS 80 PLUS (CX600)) its compatible with the i7 4770 as far as i know and it works fine on the gpu
As I added in your other thread regarding "can I replace the PSU?" to remind you that standard retail PSU's for ATX motherboards provide a standard 4+20=24 pin main power connector (12x2) for standard ATX motherboards. But the Lenovo ATX motherboards in the M9x machines are NOT STANDARD!! They have a 7x2=14 pin power connector.
So you must also buy a 24->14 pin adapter cable such as this one. It will allow you to use that standard Corsair PSU with 24-pin power for your Lenovo M93p non-standard motherboard with its 14-pin PSU connector.

...and here is another person who thinks about the same project!
Please MrAbo0oD can you tell us if your SFF is working and which components exactly do you replaced?
Following this (and other) threads I suspect that a M93P SFF with this card http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00SOXMPJY/ref=ask_ql_qh_dp_hza might work and that this PSU http://www.silverstonetek.com/product.php?pid=253&area=en together with that adapter http://www.moddiy.com/products/IBM-Lenovo-PSU-Main-Power-24%252dPin-to-14%252dPin-Adapter-Cable-%283... might do the job...
But there are too much "might"s in this text I'd like to have facts!

i didnt really upgrade the pc i might upgrade it in the summer or something like that but atm am busy with life
as far as i know from what everybody been saying and from how many people i asked u can fit a gtx 750TI (low profile) in this pc but the only issue ur facing is the power supply (and maybe the case) so what i am planning for the next summer is getting a new case, new motherboard, new PSU and then i could add ANY graphics card i want in the future and its gonna be easy after i do that, but for you, u can just get a gtx 750 TI (LP) and fit it in there with a new PSU

I can confirm that this GTX 750 TI 2GB card works perfectly in my M93p SFF machine without upgrading the PSU:
Measuring the power draw running prime95 (CPU benchmark) , FurMark (GPU benchmark) , charging mobile via USB and copying large files at the same time , it stays below 190 W . Have been running this for several hours. I have also been playing Fallout 4 (FullHD, ultra textures, 60 FPS) for 100 hours without any problems. As the case is quite compact, I was worried about the temperature but it stays below 80 C for the GPU at full power over extended periods of time (about 25C ambient temp i the room).
Installation is ok. Just mount the low profile bracket and move the PCIe 1x WiFi card (if you have one) into another slot.

Well done! Very thorough testing. Thank you for posting.
For the information of others, the Gigabyte GV-N75TOC-2GL may be a better option for some applications:
it supports 2 monitors at higher resolutions, and another 2 monitors at the common 1920 × 1200 at 60 Hz.
Update: ZapoTek makes the very good point that the Gigabyte card is slightly longer than the MSI, and may interfer with the Intel chipset heatsink on a M93p. It may work on other models, please see my post on the next page.
