I'm thinking that it might not be a good idea. The case is too small to provide good air flow, the card might be too big to fit and the power supply would have to be upgraded. Nvidia's site recommends a minimum 700 watt power requirement and two 8 pin power connectors. You Pc has a 460w psu.

+1 to tinman.

At the very least your best bet is to get a new case and transfer your parts into it, so that the GTX 590 would have adequate air flow and actually fit, and get a good 700W or greater PSU to use instead of the 460W that came with the PC originally. "Upgrade" a PSU means buy a better one to use instead.

I do not know what you have available for buying PC parts, but off the top of my head, the Cooler Master HAF series (912, 922, 932, X, etc) should fit the card. The 912 might be questionable, but I think you could remove one of its harddrive cages to allow the card to fit. Corsair cases would also be a great fit for the card.

Good brands for PSUs are Seasonic, Corsair, XFX, Antec, PC Power and Cooling. Others are also decent, so if you find one you aren't sure about, ask about it here.

Edit: Here are some of the options I was talking about, listed on a Swedish site (there is a Norweigan version too)

Cooler Master HAF 912 plus:
