You're thinking a 6708?

Since you're running 12.2(18)SXD, you might want to check release notes and see if the card is supported on that version of an IOS.  If not, you'll need to upgrade to a newer IOS.

Other than that, since your chassis is fully loaded, you might also check you'll have enough power.  However, since you'll need to swap a card, it's likely you'll have enough power, but still worth double checking.
