  1. If it has a PCIe X16 slot it will work just make sure you have enough PSU power!
  2. Only problem is, im not quite sure how to identifty this.
  3. It does have the slot http://support.dell.com/support/edocs/systems/insp560mt/en/cs/cs_en.pdf Your PSU is 300watts and Dell has a tendency to use underrated PSU's so the card might work or might not on that PSU.
  4. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/PCI_Express

    take a look at the picture. your colors may vary but the slot will have 1 short segment about 1/2 an inch and then a longer segment.

    The recommend power supply is 400 watts and requires a 6 pin pci-e connector. You will most likely have to upgrade your power supply as most dells will come with a 300 watt PSU. Open you pc and check for a 6pin connector (pretty easy to spot as it's unique) comming from the PSU. IF you don't have one then i would upgrade the PSU.
