According to the specs the minimum is 500W so yes it will work but I would go for one with a little more power to give you more room. PCI-E is the slot on the motherboard that you plug your card into. A lot of power supplies will also label their power cables that are for these graphics cards as PCI or PCI-E on the side.

No problem. Make sure you do not get those and the CPU power cabled mixed up. You will fry your hardware.

The power cables from the power supply. One will say CPU. Do not use this for your graphics card. Only for the CPU. It will look like it will fit into the graphics card though.
