Check your manual for your motherboard or have a look inside your case to see if you have a spare PCI-E slot. If your not sure post your motherboard make and model number in a reply and we'll have a look for you.

Depending on what your main use for the card is to be, are you going to be gaming, video editing or general use?

Unfortunately that info page doesn't give the motherboard make and model, go Here and download a program called Everest. Once installed run and click on the motherboard tab. This should give you a make and model number.

Or take the side off your case and look for slots equal to the 2nd and 4th slots from top in the picture below.

If you have a spare one this is where the card would fit.

I blame my eyesight, but I can't read any of the pics you've posted. What is the make and model of your computer, or if custom built, your motherboard?
Another consideration. What size is your power supply?

I'm going out on a limb here, but based on your location and the number on the motherboard, you have a eMachines (Gateway) computer with an ECS mpc 61 motherboard. Does this picture look correct?

If yes, I would definitely change the PS

I agree with you garmanma, im having a hard time picking up the MB details.

Connor, my apologies, i thought i had posted a picture for yout to look at in my last post but i had missed it, my fault for not checking.

Have a look at this picture then open up your PC and see if you have a spare PCI-E slot (the green one, although may not be green on your board)

PS = Power Supply - this may need to be upgraded due to the card being installed, we can look at that later tho.

If the system isn't a Gateway with the ECS board, a possibility is the MSI board here:

A7309NMS is the number for the BIOS of the K9N6PGM2-V:
