The Kepler-based GT 730 with GDDR5 memory. It has an official TDP of 25W which was offered is about 1/3 the Watts of the 1050 Ti.

So the 180W power supply has me writing this is a bad idea.

Not only the Watts but how many rails the +12V has. Lots of priors so in short, it will be a single rail PSU.

The links didn't supply clearances so I can't check this for you. Lenovo didn't keep the product docs so I can't tell what height the x16 slot is. You may have to try it.
