It will fit. I would be more concerned about your Case. If you have a micro atx board then usually it involves a small case.

What you have in the means of PCI express slots are as follows; Closes to the processor is a PCI-E 1x(mostly used for network cards and some usb/sata controllers), PCI-E 16x (Mostly used for GPU's but some people occasionally used them for a sata expansion and controller), PCI-E 1x(Same as above), and finally a PCI x4 legacy slot.

According to the specs, it is a 10.3" long card. Measure from the expansion slot covers to the first obstruction the card will meet when seated in its slot. Like a drive cage, for instance.

If you don't use the IDE port your fine if you do then you need to get a 90 degree IDE cable to it's not coming straight up into your card.

The only issue I see with that board and card, is that you will loose the one PCIex1 slot. But I'm sure you already know that. I don't see where the long card will interfere with either the SATA headers, the IDE header, the chipset heat sync, or the 24 pin board header, if that is your concern. Cards are designed to clear the low profile heat syncs on motherboards that are almost always in that location. Connecting cables into the SATA headers might be a bit close to the card's cover, but I don't expect you to have any problem.
