For that tower ( if Mini) you would need a half height card. 

 

And PCI/PCI-e is "Backward Compatible" so you should just be able to shutdown the machine, remove the old card (if present) and replace it with the new one, give it 30 seconds and then turn the machine on and it should install the driver automatically.

 

It Would also be helpful to know which OS you are running, Windows 7,8,8.1,10. etc.  to find out if the video card is compatible or not.

Oh well shoot, it should work right out of the box then. 

 

and with almost any video card you should just be able to plug it in, wait about 30 seconds and turn the machine on and you should have video. 

 

and that card should work with zero issues in win10.

The Dell Optiplex 780 is an older computer. What motherboard do you have in it OP? Stock OEM board, or a new one? If it is the mini version of the Optiplex 780 then you may run into space issues. Oh wait, I just checked the link you posted. You should be fine.

 

 

For that tower ( if Mini) you would need a half height card. 

 

And PCI/PCI-e is UPNP (universal plug 'n' Play) so you should just be able to shutdown the machine, remove the old card (if present) and replace it with the new one, give it 30 seconds and then turn the machine on and it should install the driver automatically.

 

It Would also be helpful to know which OS you are running, Windows 7,8,8.1,10. etc.  to find out if the video card is compatible or not. 

 

UPNP refers to a set of network protocols for "zero configuration" set up. UPNP also implies a lack of software install, which video cards require to function. I think you mean it is backwards compatible.
