    That card is PCI Express x16. I only see PCI slots on your mobo.
    Honestly, its not a good pic of your main board. Do you know what kind of slots you have or no?

    Through endless searching, which took 5 minutes, I found out this.
    http://support.gateway.com/s/PC/R/1009212/1009212nv.shtml my computer
    http://support.gateway.com/s/PC/R/1009212/1009212cl3.shtml list of componets

    # Add-in Card Slots One ×16 PCI Express
    # One ×1 PCI Express
    # Two PCI conventional

    does that mean I have it?


    also, I didnt mean as in if my comp is compatible to the video card, I mean will it psychically(sp?) fit.

    Psychically fit? Yes. It will just simply take one slot for the actual card and the spot below/above for the heat sink and fan.
