What is your motherboard? It's physically a PCI-e x16 but I don't know how it's wired electrically without knowing the motherboard make/model.

If you want to know for yourself and don't know what your motherboard is, put a graphics card in it and run GPU-z, which will tell you (make sure you hit the little "?" by the PCI-e box readout in GPU-z when you do or else it will just report PCI-e 1.1 x4).

Have you tried reading your motherboards manual?

    Then use CPUz to find the out the model and manufacturer and then go to their website and download it.

    Is that a pre-built computer? Must be since its an un-named OEM motherboard. So without the name of the whole computer, cant do much.

    But if its anything recent (P/H61, Z/H68, Z/H77, probably most LGA775 chipsets), the top PCI-e slot should be at 16x.
    Even if its not and only 8x, I doubt it would bottleneck the GPU, the cards you are getting aren't all that powerful.

    An image of the whole motherboard may help. Brand logo's or specifications on it, that sort of stuff. It will also tell us if it has a standard ATX layout, so we can figure out if its a board unique to that pre-built or if its a proper consumer motherboard.

    Well that's useful, not! From your earlier pictures it looks like some sort of Asus motherboard but without you doing some research on any numbers or names stamped on the board you may end up trying out a lot of hardware ID programs.

    It may help to point out that PCIE slots are all forward/backward compatible. As long as you have a slot, you can plug a GPU into it.

    The worst that can happen is the card could run at less than it's full potential sometimes.

    Yes that is a tiny little mATX board in a dusty case.

    Is that an M-ATX board in an ATX case? Nothing wrong with that, just a bit weird.

    Never heard of Mercury before.
    Im guessing by the IDE connector its a 775 board. Do you know if the RAM is DDR2 or 3? Or what CPU is in it (CPU-Z should tell you).
    Whole thing is fairly nondescript. Only branding is that Mercury logo, with no printing to tell what each slot is or any of its features.

    Heres Mercury's website with a search function for their motherboards. All the 775 mobo's listed dont look visually like yours, but that might not mean much.
    http://www.mercury-pc.com/p-mainboards.php

    In a nutshell, its gonna be pretty hard to trace the heritage of that mobo. I would just stick in the new GPU and hope for the best. As I said before, those cards aren't big performers, so I doubt a bottleneck will occur.

    Yep, that LGA775. I still cant find the exact motherboard, but the G33 chipset in general supported a 16x PCI-E slot (if this mobo and Intel website are anything to go on).

    http://www.asus.com/Motherboards/Intel_Socket_775/P5KVM...
    http://ark.intel.com/products/31914/Intel-82G33-Graphic...

    Though (according to your screenshot, ASUS mobo and Intel) its only a Gen 1.1 PCI slot, so in Gen 2 terms its only 8x bandwidth. Again, this might not be a problem, as PCI is backward compatible, and 8x bandwidth is probably still plenty for that card.

    You should be fine to put in those cards. Though if you upgrade to anything beefier, expect bottle-necking.

    EDIT:
    Yeah, had to download the image and flip it before I could read the logo.
