RX 580 would be my choice right now since that card is a few generations old at this point so you'll get a pretty good deal. But if you can wait, I would be interested to see what happens with the 3050 and 3060 tier cards from Nvidia.

If he's using the minitower variant yes. If it's the SFF, guess it's time to break out the dremel and leave the side panel off. Or it's riser time.

Simple way to know if it'll fit a regular sized GPU, does it look exactly like this thing?
