Windows 7: Would a NVIDIA GeForce 8800 GTX work with my computer

Would a NVIDIA GeForce 8800 GTX work with my computer

I am looking to buy a used NVIDIA GeForce 8800 GTX graphics card off ebay. It's in great condition, and I know its not the newest card out there but I think its much better than the one I currently have. Can anyone tell me if it will work with my computer? I have an HP Pavilion a6826f Desktop computer. I filled out as many system specs as I could, but I couldn't for some, as I am not very technically inclined. Based on the info given though, can anyone tell me if the graphics card will work/fit in my computer?

Thank you so much!

You will need a new power supply. According to the specs of your computer it says you have a 250watt power supply and the video card says to at least have 450watts of power.So yes it should work fine on your computer but you will need a power supply with higher wattage of at least 450watts.
