PCI and PCI express are 2 different slot types. I'm assuming the card you have is a PCI... maybe an AGP, but from what I have tried to look up it's PCI only. your best solution in all honesty, is to save up and build/buy a whole new system. to be totally sure about the card though. try this:

this will give you an HTML profile of your system and tell you what you need to know. but before posting X out all personal info (CD keys near the bottom, etc..)

but I still think you should hold off and get a whole new system

Dell 4K S2817Q / Logitech Z-680 / Func MS3 Mouse / Corsair K70
NZXT Source 530 / i7-3770K / Corsair H100 / ASRock Z77 Extreme4 / SoundBlaster Recon3d
Samsung 850 PRO 512GB SSD/Seagate 1TB/2TB/WD 2TB
4x4GB Corsair Vengeance 2133 / PNY GTX 980 ti/ Seasonic M12II 850W
