Option 1: Put the motherboard in a new case, probably will involve a fair bit of modding

Option 2: Find a OEM GTX 1050 Ti that's half-height and single slot (no consumer 1050 Ti that I know of is both of those)

and cooling

 

Non-existent. These small form factor machines aren't really designed to have add-in GPUs installed. They're designed to primarily run on integrated graphics only as they are office machines.

You need to cool it, but it's just not possible to do with the card inside the case with the side panel closed. You'll likely need to use a PCIe riser and have the card sitting outside of the case.

well what about 1030 ? then

Low profile, single slot GT 1030's do exist. They don't require extra power (it comes from the pcie slot). They also have an integrated fan for cooling.
