Hey all, I want to start gaming on my PC but not sure that I can with what's inside it right now.
I have a Dell Optiplex 755 SFF and here's some more info:
Intel® Core ™2 Duo CPU E6550 @ 2.33GHz 
4 GB Ram (3.24 GB usable) 
32-bit operating system
at the moment the graphics card that it came with is a Intel Q35 Express Chipset Family, Internal, 256MB. I have a 1920 x 1080 screen

I did some research and I think the graphics card has to be low profile also

I'm wondering what kind of card I will need to be able to play some PC games like DayZ,Minecraft,Counter Strike e.t.c. 

Thanks and have a nice day

Yes you will need a low profile card. Just google around best card for your power supply. Most cards recomend 400+ watt. you should only have a 280watt if you have not changed it. I have a 250watt PSU and run a card recomending 400+ no problems.. Minecraft you can play now, or should be able to with no problems. Yuo can probably play Counter Strike if you lower some settings but as far as DayZ goes even with a grahpics card its your processor your going have to worry about

I have a Radeon HD5450 its a cheap 1GB card. I got it off Amazon for $29.99 and it has/had a $10 mail in rebate. I just got it cause my on board went out and needed something cheap to see if the that was the problem..

sapphire is the OEM that offers that solution, they have several low profile cards in their radeon line-up. i saw this 7750 as an example.
