I bought a Dell Optiplex 960 small form factor. It comes with a 235 watt power supply. I know my video selection is limited. I am looking to put in a better video card compared to the built in video (32 MB). I know most 512 MB DDR2 video cards will work but can I put in something better than this?

Does AMD have a list of video cards that will work in my PC? I know it has be low profile. It would be nice if there was a link for us that own brand new PCs that could put in the model and get back, here are the video cards you can install.

With a 235w power supply you're looking at something 75w or below (as in a card which doesn't need a PCIe power connector and draws all of it from the PCIe slot itself).

I recommend a better PSU before you look at a video card upgrade. Your current one is garbage.
