Default GeForce 5500 256MB DDR PCI slot???

Hi guys this is gonna seem like the most ultimate of a simple question but i just need to be sure of somthing. The other day i brought a GeForce 5500 256MB DDR PCI graphics card off eBay without actualy first looking at my pci slot! (how dumb am i?) so from looking at my pci slot and the card doesnt look like its going to fit (card hasnt arrived yet) so can anybody tell me if im right or wrong? Thanks! (SEE ATTACHED PICS!)

It should fit. What motherboard do you have? The slot you've circled looks like a standard 32bit 5V PCI slot. I've looked at pictures of the "GeForce 5500 256MB DDR PCI " and it looks about right. It has two notches to allow it to fit in either a 5V PCI or 3.3V PCI slot. What is the exact model and manufacturer of your FX5500?
