That machine still has the original power supply, right? 
According to the stats, the one the model ships with merely provides 180w. Plus, it's an out of the norm format factor, so replacing it might be tricky.

That aside:
there is no point in buying a new card of an outdated generation, if the current gen is only $10 more. It would only be worth to consider as used second-hand part.

As extra short single slot versions of the Nvidia GTX 1050 ti with 4 GB, there are Zotac and EVGA. Faster performance and twice as much VRAM, which comes in handy for texture-intense SL.

An older post, BUT still will help those with this HP computer & or residents with the smaller micro cases. First off it has a *mini* ATX size power supply @ only 180 watts max, so before thinking of adding a dedicated graphics card (GPU) you'll need to replace it with a higher wattage/amperage unit. I like this one; since it comes with an adapter bracket so as to fit up a reg. ATX case too for future case changes.

Since you are saying you use it for SL and not mentioning pc gaming go with the 2GB DDR5 version:

If you were to use SL AND pc game it:

Keep in mind NONE of the Nvidia GTX 1XXX GPUs support analog signal, so a VGA adapter will not work!  Notice I never recommend Newegg.com? They are a great e-retailer to buy from, UNLESS you run into a DOA, defective product, or especially if you require a prompt refund. I can tell you that BestBuy & Amazon have always resolved any issues I have had within 48 hours to my satisfaction. Amazon even gave me a refund within 24 hours, which was posted back into my account within 48 hours. Here is "egg" in your eye.
