pci slot confusion

Ok I have a inspiron 570 with a graphics card that it pretty normal, as in bad so I was going to get a amd 5770, but I noticed that the pci slot doesnt look like a pci-e slot but I dont know much about pci slots. Will a 5770 slot fit into a 04GJJT motherboard?

It will work since the board has a PCI Express x16 slot, however the HD5770 requires a PSU with a minimum of 450W

Any standard ATX power supply will fit in a Inspiron 570 if you decide to upgrade.
