Help with buying: nVidia EVGA GeForce GTX 460 SuperClocked

I am going to buy a nVidia EVGA GeForce GTX 460 SuperClocked from tech4u.com. Although Fumz has kind of said that my computer is compatible for the card, I just want to make sure. It's a lot of money and I'd hate it if I find out i doesn't fit in my computer after I've bought it. So anyway, will this graphics card work with my computer?

Thanks in advance,
Jaidyn

Make sure that you have two 6 pin power connectors available for it.
