hello.. yes your new video card should fit over that PCI slot... pretty standard that double slot card will now block the use of your pci slot... move any cards inserted there over.

Yes iron is correct. The new double wide video card will take up both slots and it will sit about 1/8th inch above that extra pci slot.
