That GTX 1050 Ti is about the best GPU you can currently get on a low-profile card. Any higher-performance GPUs are sold only as full-height cards at this present time.
Besides, your Optiplex 7010 dates back to the Ivy Bridge generation of 2012. As such, the i7 should be an i7-3770 (non-K) in that PC. Put the two together, and you'd end up with a fairly well balanced configuration in terms of the CPU / GPU balance.
And don't waste your money on a GPU that's higher-end than your planned GTX 1050 Ti for a quad-core Ivy Bridge CPU: The CPU might not be able to match the overkill GPU in terms of GPU-accelerated rendering performance.

Randall know what he is talking about, go for the GTX 1050
Thank you so much, Randall! I really appreciate your advice. I am not that computer savvy. I will go ahead and get the 1050Ti. After looking for days for a low-profile card, I was getting pretty frustrated and couldn't find much information using it with Adobe Premiere Pro 2017. The 1050Ti was the best that I could find. Thanks again!
