8800GTS Will it fit?

I want to upgrade from a X800GT to a 8800GTS, i have measured my case and there is enough space in length (240mm) the thing is the depth. I read on amazon that the card i was looking at:

XFX GF 8800 GTS 500M 320MB DDR3 DUAL DVI TV PCI EXPRESS

Was 1.5 inches thick (37-38mm). It appears to me that the gap on my motherboard is very slightly larger than the 1.5 inches. Then there is a sound card. I figure this would block the fan and affect cooling. My motherboard is a Winfast K8M890M2MA.

I am afraid i don't know if this the answer to this is obvious as i am not that savvy with graphics cards (i.e. it is a 1 slot card so does that automatically mean it will fit?).

Anyone out there able to help me?
Thanks
