Cool Question about adding a video card to my computer

Hey guys,
So my rig at the moment is:http://support.gateway.com/s/PC/R/10...09456sp2.shtml

My video card crapped out on me, and so im looking on the market for a new one. What i had in mind was a Nvidia geforce gtx460... (http://www.nvidia.com/object/product...tx-460-us.html)

What im wondering is if this card will fit onto my motherboard pci slot without any problems. I am not looking to upgrade anything else, i simply just want the best video card compatible with my computer now.

Sorry if this might be a dumb question-and thanks in advance!

Chance
