Not as simple as just picking up 'any'

PCI express video card.

Looks like the Optiplex 780 comes in different form factors which could affect your options for a graphic card....based on card height and card length. The other factors include budget....and you power supply.

Bottom line more info is needed on the form factor, budget and power supply for the Optiplex 780 to recommend a video card that will fit and function properly

Here's some info re the Optplex 780 from the Dell support site.
