So I just bought a dell optiplex 7010 for a good price 

(8gb single channel, i5 3470, 200gb ssd, no gpu)

 

and i decided to put a gpu innit but then i realized there basically no airflow if i put smth like a gtx1650 low profile. since this pc is quite old yk (almost 10 years) and i cant find any casing for the sff version, only the mt version. can anyone find any casing for it pls, tysm

IIRC the SFF version of that OptiPlex doesn't use a completely standard motherboard, so you wouldn't be able to move it to a new case very easily. Even if you could the front panel I/O connectors are usually different, so you'd have to fix that. 

 

However, with how those machines are laid out there shouldn't be any issues with a GPU in the current case as long as it isn't a super powerful card (which it isn't). The CPU cooler directly exhausts out of the back of the machine, and there is an intake fan in the front of the case.

but the gpu has almost since theres many cables in such a small space, (i personally have one more ssd which have one more sata cable and the power cable for the ssd) and the air intake fan is weak
