You have PCI-e x16 slots on the motherboard. There shouldn't face any issues while install the card.
Make sure that you have 500 W of power supply.

Beta ,I think the Op here has never Installed a videocard on thiere own and i am assuming it was prebuilt and not by them

That's what it looks like to me

In regards to the OP's question it should fit fine and have no issues if installed correctly if any doubt always consult your OWNERS MANUEL that is why it is there

It has lots of usefull information to help you understand your installation also you can do some youtube video tutoritals or even get some off of here in the Graphics card department

Lol I read this as the op had a really small case and the gpu was too long from the title.

An adapter may also be needed if the gpu takes 2x 6pin power connectors, and the psu only has the one.

Correct. The card will require 2 x 6pin connectors for power.

You will need a clear 11.5 inches minimum from the back of the case to the hard drive cage or any other obstruction to install that card. Older cases that measure (on the outside of the case) 18 inches or less deep have trouble with these cards. (nothing that can't be corrected with a good pair of tin snips )

Other issues that arise is the width of the card, it covers 2 PCI slots, so you can't have a card installed in that second slot.

And some poorly designed motherboards have the SATA or USB connectors located in the footprint of the card. Look at your motherboard and consider the real estate under that 11.5 inch card.
