Your MB will only accept either a PCI-E X1 http://www.newegg.co...=PCI Express x1 or a PCI type of card http://www.newegg.co...deId=1&name=PCI
If there is room inside your case you could use an adapter such as http://www.amazon.co...2/dp/B0039XPS5W which would give you more of a choice of add on video cards.
A cautionary note, you may also need to replace the PSU with a more powerful one to power the new video card, brand name PC suppliers often put the bare minimum of PSU in to keep build costs down and as your system was not intended to run a native PCI-E X16 video card the unit may only have a PSU with an output of around 230 - 250W, they are sometimes smaller in size or different in shape so this also needs to be checked.
