Question A new computer upgrader in need of help!

So here's what I need help with. I have a HP Pavilion P6000 Series (Model p6710t) and I'm looking to upgrade my graphics card. I've done my research and am sure I can upgrade it on my own, I've also taken a look inside my computers innards to see what it looks like/what I need to do. I currently have a GeForce GTX 370 and I'm looking to upgrade it to a 570. So here's my question: Looking at the pictures of the 570 it looks like it's a lot bulkier. In my system I currently have a little tiny 370. Next to my 370 I have another card that needs to stay in for my system to display stuff on my monitor. Now I don't know if the 570 will fit/if there is a way to have my monitor display without that small card next to the graphics card. The card (570) is 10.5" x 4.38" and my current card (370) is (Or looks) a lot smaller than that, but when I google search images for it (370) it comes up with pictures of the 370, but bulky like the 570. Is there a way to remove the Bulky part? And how many slots does the 570 take up (Talking about the slots that connect it to the back of the computer, there are 4 on mine one not in use it seems).

Please help and thanks in advance!
