It says : 1x PCI-E x16 so it should go.

Connector wise, it should work no problem.
You want to make sure that your power supply has an extra (6-pin) cable (you can get adapters if needed).
So assuming nothing interferes with the card physically (hard to tell from the pictures, but the ram might be kinda close), you should be fine.

it has a PCI-E 1.0 x16

so yes, it will support that GPU... of course it will bottleneck that gpu a little bit... you'll only get like 80% of what the gpu is capable out of it.

the bigger question is, does your psu have the right power plugs for the gpu.

It should fit the motherboard. It will cover one of the small PCI slots though. The motherboard is used in a pre-built by dell, so make sure the case is big enough too. Be sure to check out the recommend graphics cards at different price points. The GPU seems a bit expensive considering the age of the motherboard.
