It will fit on the motherboard fine-as in it will hook up to the pci express x16 lane just fine, Id be more concerned with A: the size of the case, that board is a micro-atx board, is it safe to assume its a micro ATX case? cooling is a definite issue, as well as the card physically fitting into the case. The next issue is the powersuppy, your probably gonna need a good solid 550-600 watt PSU to handle a card like this.

the case is a mid-atx, so there shouldnt be a problem there, however the stock power supply is only a 300 watt PSU that is nowhere near qualified to handle a card such as a 560 or a 9800. I would advise against installing either card until you have upgraded your power supply to something similar to this otherwise you will blow your power supply, and risk damaging other components of your system.

Thats often hard to tell until you have the card in the system, though ideally I would say you would need at least one intake fan on the front of the case and one exhaust on the back, most store bought pcs have the rear exhaust but few have the front intake-though hp is usually good about leaving room for one. I prefer using 120 mm fans if I can, if theres no mounts for one, if your careful and remove all the components you can usually drill mounts for one (if theres room) just be careful to remove all computer components before hand and thoroughly clean the metal shavings out before replacing them
