Can I upgrade to an 8800GS?

I have heard conflicting things about upgrading the graphics card in my iMac. Some say that an 8800GS from Apple will work, but some say that I cannot upgrade at all. I know the second is false thanks to ifixit. I want to have a video card powerful enough to run Final Cut Pro X with some decent power, so an 8800GS seems fine. It's on Apple's supported cards list, and it has 512MB of VRAM, so that is OK, too. So is this upgrade supported? When I look at a picture of an 8800GS, there are three tabs along the bottom of the card, but my current card has only two tabs (I have an ATI Radeon 2400XT 128MB). Does the 8800GS fit in my machine, and will it work? Any help appreciated.
