The video card will be able to play the games, but with 512 mb of ram only, that might limit you. Also most power supplies have a sticker on them telling you how much power they put out at different voltages. To make sure the video card works, you will need a min of 18A (amps) with the 12v (volts) rail.

The main thing to look for is if the PC has an open PCI-E x16 slot.... I the link you provided is the PC you bought then it does have an open x16 slot and you should be fine.

The only thing in question to me is the power supply. The PS units that come standard with a machine like that are usually not the best, but you should be be able to install and use that card without a problem. I would definately look into buying a quality PSU in the very near future...much better than waiting for that PSU to die from the strain and take the rest of your PC with it.
