    The motherboard has 3 PCI Express and 1 PCI slot. You could put in a low-profile video card (the PCI slot is probably unusable without a riser cable because of where the power supply is located).

    Considering the age of the computer, and the limited performance of most low-profile cards, and the capacity of the power supply, it's probably not worth messing with, but that's up to you.

    Example card (in this particular configuration, you would be unable to use VGA with the low-profile bracket, but as you have an HDMI monitor, that's not a problem):
