Just need someone to answer my question (title). It's a nvidia geforce gtx 260 and my case is a mini tower hp p6-2160ea. I'm not sure whether it will fit or not because I'm confused by the dimensions.

Dimensions of my case:

Height: Height: 36.8 cm (14.4 inches)
Width: 16.5 cm (6.4 inches)
Depth: 38.9 cm (15.3 inches)

Dimensions for GTX 260:

Height: 4.376 inches (111 mm)
Length: 10.5 inches (267 mm)

Also, what does dual slot mean?

It would be absolutely necessary to know if you have a PCI express x16 slot.

Yes, I do. I have one lane x16 2.0 slot in my motherboard.

Dual slot means that it would take two slot spots in your tower (not necessarily take both ports, but take up both spaces in size).

Yeah all good, I think. You only need to check the PCI express lane(s) to know if a graphics card will fit, but you might want to receive further confirmation since your case is a slim, but you should be good.

Can anyone else confirm it if it will fit please?
