Yes should be possible, just use a lower energy eating Graphics card like a GTX 1050.

Something like this:

No need for external power with this one.

 

Of course this depends on what model you have, you have the small slim version or the standard desktop one?

If standard desktop you got some room in there to turn it into a very modest but still great gaming monster :D

No there is no relation between your ram type and the GDDR ram on a GPU, they are not relative.

They just have similar names

Do note the SFF desktop can only accept half height (low profile) video cards, according to the spec sheet - https://i.dell.com/sites/doccontent/shared-content/data-sheets/en/Documents/optiplex-9020-micro-technical-spec-sheet.pdf

Indeed, that would be the only compatibility issue really, unless you get the rotary saw of course :D

https://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=9SIA6ZP5NK0412 If you want the same GTX 1050 chipsets but you would have to try it and see if it fits. If you would like to search more graphics card on the filters select Low Profile Bracket Included.

When selecting a half height graphics card also bear in mind that the space available in the SFF case for the graphics card heat sink is very limited - some cards have heat sinks that cannot be made to fit in the available space.
