>>This<< is my current computer. I just bought a GeForce GT 640 Graphics Card to upgrade it as a computer guy told me to. But, I realized my graphics card is integrated, as the site above says. How do I go about upgrading it now? Sorry, I'm a noob at this so any help is really appreciated!

Your PC came with an integrated graphics subsystem. No problem.
The computer guy recommended buying the GeForce GT 640 Graphics Card.

Without looking further into your current config (motherboard, PCI interface, etc), yes, it will probably work.
The new GeForce card will take over the functions of what the integrated thing used to do, and probably do it better.

In future, do your homework before doing what "computer guy told me to". He is there to sell you stuff, not necessarily make it better or functional.

Heh, what I meant by "computer guy" is a friend who works with computers and after sending him my specs, that is what he told me to get! But, thanks. I always feared that an integrated graphics card meant it cant be upgraded. Obviously, that's not the case :)

"...my friend told me..." is often exactly the wrong advice. I've seen three of those in here, just today.

But yes, you should be fine.
