Would this graphics card work in my PCI?

Hey there, i am just wandering if the MSI GeForce GTX 760 Gaming Edition OC 4GB(http://www.pccasegear.com/index.php?main_page=product_info&cPath=193_1511&products_id=24823)
Would work on my "One half-length, full-height, PCI Express x16". I did some researching to try and figure out what was exactly meant by a half-length yet full height pci slot, but I'm pretty new when it comes to computers and couldn't figure this out for myself, so i thought i would ask here :)
Thanks.

    The card should work fine with that mobo. Make sure you have enough power for it and that it fits in your case

    Anyway, for that kind of money I would rather buy an R9 280X
    http://
    It trades blows with a gtx 770 and is much faster than the 760

    What psu do you have ?, can you list all of your specs ?

    Pentium(R) Dual-Core CPU E5400 @ 2.70GHz
    is my CPU.
  6. Your PSU probably couldn't support the load, your CPU will probably bottleneck it.
    All in all, I'd say get a new computer for at least $500

    In saying that, do you have any suggestions on what pc i should buy? I mainly just want to play games Like League of Legends and WoW on high settings with about 60FPS. But i wouldn't mind having something that could atleast play medium graphic settings on games like BF4 etc.
