That is a PCI Express card. That will not fit in your machine.
It takes the older type, AGP. These cards are beginning to dry up in availablitity now and there's only about two models going, both of which are not really very good in the grand scale of things.

If your intention is to upgrade the machine to support gaming, then realistically that machine is not going to cope.
