As long as there is an available PCI-E 16x slot, more than possible.

How much are you looking to spend?

What are you trying to accomplish. If it is for games, that's one thing. You'll have to spend a little. For normal use you can find a good card in the $50 to $80 range.
Once the card is installed, you have to change the setting in the BIOS.

You can do but, depending on the mobo/BIOS, you might have to manually disable the integrated gfx.

That is an excellent question. Most stock OEM boxes come with 250 Watts which is not sufficient for most graphic cards. Changing the PSU is not a big deal, but it is an extra cost of around $60 to $80. I like Antec PSUs.

ok that will greatly factor into what you can get as you will have to upgrade that also if your looking at anything above a 9400gt or a HD5350, usually you need at least a 500 to 600 watt psu
