If your talking about a low profile system, that won't fit as is.The end bracket is sized for a standard case and the low profile cards have a bracket roughly have that. It would work just fine, but it won't fit your card with the bracket they shot there. The card itself may even be a little big, but maybe not. Look for something that says low-profile and see what you can find.

going by the specs, it looks like its got a pci-e x16 slot. So if you find a low profile card to fit your case you can. Most times it's hard to find anything high performance for low profile though.
