Default Radeon in my comp, will it work?

I just got a brand spankin new emachines t6520, 3400 amd athlon 64 bit processor, 300 watt PS

And I have a Radeon 9800 Pro With Zalman Heatpipe, and the Zalmon fan thing.

If I put this in my computer, will it work and not kill my computer? Or should I take off the heatpipe and put in the original ATI fan?

Aww man, how dumb is this?? My computer doesnt even have an AGP slot so I cant put it in. on the computer label it says "ATI RADEON XPRESS 200", and under that it says "PCI-Express Slot Available"

Is there anyway I can still put this Video Card in?

PCI-ex is better than AGP, buy a 6600gt or a 6800 series and be happy!, pci-ex is awesome
