Question Will it fit?

Im planing to buy this card (HD 4670)
Newegg.com - HIS Hightech H467QT512P Radeon HD 4670 IceQ Turbo 512MB 128-bit GDDR3 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready CrossFire Supported Video Card - Desktop Graphics / Video Cards

Will it fit in a inspiron 531? It has 1 PCI Express 2.0 x16 And since the HD 4670 is a dual slot Because of the fan thing or heatsink (i don't know) would it take more than a PCI express slot? i also have a 300w.

And Do you guys think that the hd 4670 is better than the 2600xt GDDR4 Memory 2200MHz?
Newegg.com - POWERCOLOR HD2600XT 256MB GDDR4 Radeon HD 2600XT 256MB 128-bit GDDR4 PCI Express x16 HDCP Ready CrossFire Supported Video Card - Desktop Graphics / Video Cards

Plz don't suggest any other video cards.

Thank you!!

I don't see why it wouldn't fit in there.....

Do you see that little slot right below the pci express 16 slot ? that is a power connector slot for any pci express card you might put in there,
Also I suggest maybe power supply that 500 watts that would be enough to power the ati HD 4670, but ask the others which parts you should put in there.
