Frankly, I'm not experienced with installing computer parts, so I'm not quite sure on how to put in the PSU and the graphics card.
So then, best way to do that is to contact a services to do that for you.

Haha. It seems pretty simple now, after looking at some guides.

Just one last question, what happens to my integrated graphics card, after installing a dedicated one?

You switch it off in the BIOS.

^ That.

One more thing. How much is the total cost of the PSU and GPU you're planning to purchase?

Around 290$ excluding any extra fees.

Both the graphics card and power supply looks good. However, if you can spare an extra ten bucks, I would have a look at an Antec 750w. Just a bit of extra power in case you want a bit of headroom for future upgrades or overclocks.

Extra PSU power is always welcome.
