Yes, in the x16 slot. Manual here: https://dell.to/2Jyp6Tn

Note that Dell's SFF (small form factor) case contains a measly 240 watt PSU (power supply unit). It is that long, weird-shaped aluminum colored box running the length of the case. As such, it is almost impossible to find a replacement with enough wattage to handle a discrete GPU (graphics/video card). :(

According to your log:

You have THIS Dell OptiPlex 7010 Small Form Factor which came with these specs:
Intel Core i5-3570 3.40 GHz quad core processor
cpu.JPG
8 GB DDR3-1600 RAM
500 GB hard disk drive
AMD Radeon HD 7470 1 GB graphics card
gpu.JPG
240W power supply

You appear to have removed its original 500 GB hard disk drive and switched to a much larger capacity 3 TB hard disk drive.
You appear to have removed its original AMD graphics card and are using its Intel HD Graphics 2500 integrated graphics device.

If your intent is to make it a gaming computer, you're fighting a losing battle. (n)
