I normally keep my hand on the inner side of the case (metal part) :p

Check what power supply your PC has as previously stated, and PCI-E slots should look like this.

[quote name='xTaunted']Highly doubt your computer has them. I have a similar system and it uses sata. (This is my shit computer, my good one's like 900 mi away)

Underneath the slots, printed on the motherboard should say whether or not it's PCI-E (might say PCIE_#_#, or PCIExpress2.0, or something similar).
