YES, take a tape measure or ruler and measure from where the current video card is at the back of the computer, to where the new card would end inside. You just need to know that what ever card you buy, will fit inside and have enough ROOM.

You want to know if the length of the card will fit.

HEllo @Soniss 

 

Not sure if that card will fit. You need to measure the available space where the current card sits and compare it with the new cards specs. It might be too long, you will have to see.

 

Otherwise, that would be the only limitation.

I'm not sure what kind of issues you might run into. Its a micro-ATX form factor motherboard. Some of the wiring might be proprietary and would take some time to connect possibly. If the IO shield on the back is removable, it would probably work out. OK.

Proprietary means it could have connectors and such that are not standard. You can most likely install the board to another Micro ATX compatible case though, but I don't think the power connectors for the switches will look like the same layout as a standard motherboard will.
