Question regarding fitting of Graphic Card. Kindly Help.

So I have a Dell Inspiron 580s (slim tower) cabinet. My motherboard is Dell 0C2KJT. I want to upgrade it with a low end DDR5 Graphic Card and some RAM. The card I've selected is Zotac GT 730 DDR5. Here are the links-

Now I have a few questions about it (or about my PC).
Can anyone tell me whether my motherboard has PCI x16 (2.0). I know 2.0 cards are backwards compatible but I just wanted to know whether mine is 2.0 or not.
And most importantly can any expert (I repeat expert) tell me whether that card will fit in my motherboard physically. Not Cabinet (I'll remove one side of it), but Motherboard. Because when I looked up my motherboard on internet it seemed very congested. And if I make that purchase of card it can't be returned. Please can anyone for sure tell me whether it will fit into my motherboard or not. Thanks a lot.

    That card should work with your system. There were optional discrete graphics cards for the 580s. The recommended PSU for the GT 730 is 300 watts minimum, so you"ll need to check yours. If you have a 230 watt PSU, you may need to swap that out, too.

    I have 250 Watt PSU, but since it's Dell's factory model, I'll try to give it a go. What I'm actually worried about is physical space available, my motherboard seems to be too congested.
