WTB - low profile GPU

Considering upgrading the graphics in my HTPC, currently using the integrated HD530 from the i3-6300. Needs to be low profile and low power (powered from the PCI slot). It needs to be a significant upgrade from the HD530 for light gaming. Just reading reviews something like:


GTX-750/750ti/1030


RX-460/550


Let me know what you have, and want for it shipped to US zip 80132.

I've used two LP 1050ti's, both for folding, one for gaming for a 9 year old on 1080p, they work amazingly.... no power connector either.

Yes a 1050ti would work fine, probably overkill, hoping for something cheaper. Sitting on the couch across the room playing 1080p with a controller, and all the resolution and graphics settings are less important.

I have a shorty MSI 1060 6gb. It requires a 6 pin, though.
