any gpu will work with your mobo, and for $200 i would suggest an r9 270X.

yes, you choose one over the other. usually, when you put in a graphics card, your mobo automatically disables the onboard graphics and uses the graphics card.

as Danbuscus25 said, any GPU will fit your mobo. it's the case dimensions that govern which cards will fit.

where the PCI-E slot is measure the space between the back panel and HDD cage , or the front of the inside of the case, if no cage. don't buy a card bigger than this.

edit: oh. should be a BIOS setting to choose between the two, if it doesn't automatically switch to the PCI-E GPU when installed
