The PhysX card adds additional graphics to existing games, a very, very short list of games. Unless you're playing one of these games, it will do absolutely nothing for you. For a complete list:

It runs off of a normal PCI slot.

Yes. PCI is the current standard for most add on cards, like sound cards, modems, physx cards, network cards, etc. You probably have 2-4 on your motherboard, they're white slots, a couple of inches long.

DXdiag might tell you, but the easiest way is to open the side of your case and look at how many white slots, about 3" long, you have. They'll be toward the back on the bottom.
