We need a lot more info...
First off, what PC is this? brand model... HP I'm assuming...
Second, is this a standard tower or a slimline?
What is the brand and +12V amperage from the sticker on the power supply inside the case?
You may want to look at the cooling or the dust inside your PC, because 58C is a little warm, and if your adding a dedicated Video card, your also adding heat..
We also need your budget, what can you afford for this seeing as how you'll likely need a power supply upgrade as well...

What graphics card are you using now? Is it a PCIe card?
The data in your photos does not list a video card slot even though it does list PCI slots. Are you sure you have a video card slot or are PCI slots all that is available.?
If you are not sure of what slots you have you can compare it to the picture on this page at upgradevideocards.com:
