Default 2900PRO Motherboard Compatibility

I am planning on upgrading from my 512MB 8600GT to a 2900PRO here soon.

I am just concerned about the size of the card fitting with my motherboard.

Here is my board:
Gateway Support - Main View

What do you guys think?

Also, this is my Power Supply:
Gateway Support - 6501079*Delta 700 Watt Power Supply

I don't think I should have a problem there, but let me know what you guys think about the compatibility here. Mahalos

I was reading some specs on the 2900PRO somewhere, and it said something about needing a "dual-width" PCI express slot, so that was the source of my concern.

Thanks for the input Nos, I think that I might just give it a go if I can get rid of my 8600GT.

That just means make sure you have enough room for the cooling unit, it takes up more room than a single slot card. It's basically double the thickness.
