How does this Video Card fit (physically) with this computer?

Hi, I was hoping this would be simple to answer for one of you smart people....

Will this card [newegg.com] fit into this computer [amazon.com]? I've never installed a video card before, so please excuse my ignorance.

I know this card is compatible, the power supply is all good, everything seems hunky dory, but physical size-wise, I have no clue how these pieces actually fit together. Does it replace the current hdmi/vga slots? Does it get added to another area? I'm dumb. Sorry. Thank you worship

the video card will go into the PCI Express slot on the motherboard- you'll take off one of the metal strips from the back and plug your monitor into it there.

I agree, this is a "Short" card, should fit without issues.

Agreed.

Newegg lists the length as just over 6.5", and the pictures show it to be just as long as the PCI-e connector, so you're good to go OP. Most towers don't run into problems with graphics cards until they get to be ~9" or longer.
