no, you will have to order a new motherboard with the new pci x16 capabilities.

Just the motherboard if you have a CPU socket fitting yours.

You will need to order a new motherboard. With that you will have to make sure that your socket chipsets and your ram type works.

Do you know how to take a screen shot of your moniter screen? If you do, do that of the cpu-z.
