Will it work?

So not going to lie im pretty new to computers, I recently purchased a Cyberpower PC that I believe I got a pretty good deal on, at the black friday sale...my only issue so far is that the video card is horrible, and i only have room on this mother board for one card, even then im loosing one of the other slots...so what im thinking about buying since i can only have one video card is

I apologize if that link doesnt work but its a evga gtx 670, which is seriously pushing my budget but i want to be able to easily run the games i play and will play in the future..easy stuff such as WoW, world of tanks, planet side 2, and i plan on playing mechwarrior online when it releases. My question is because i very new to advanced computer use and building, will i run into any problems with what i have or is there anything else i should upgrade first??? im fairly confident the video card should meet my needs for awhile until i buy a new motherboard and can run 2 or more cards..thank you very much for your insight..im just looking for any potential pitfalls before i spend 400 dollars on a video card.

my system specs follow...

Windows 8 (x64) (build 9200)
3.40 gigahertz Intel Core i5-3570K

More about will work
  1. Hi, here is 3 things you have to check out:
    - your motherboard must have a pci-e x16 slot which im almost sure it will)
    - your power supply unit to meet the requeriments of that card i think its about 500w-550w (according to nvidia website).
    -you need plenty of space inside your case card is about 10-10.5" long.

    And yeah that card its a beast it will shred the games you mentioned to pieces.
  2. The card will do great with those games. Won't have issues.
    Whats your PSU? didn't see it listed. Heres a watt calculator

    Put your parts in there and make sure your current psu can handle the 670
