Default What PCI port?

I'm in the market for new graphics cards but I have no idea what type of PCI port I have. What way is there for me to find out?

The motherboard is from a Dell Inspiron 570, which is by the way not a compact PC.

PCI | FinitPC

you will most likely need a PCI-E 1.0, 2.0, or 3.0, they are all the same size as shown.
