Do you know the exact name of the pc? There is probably a sticker on the front that tells you what it is.
Plus, you can look at what the empty slot in your computer is.
Edit: Replied while I was still typing. Yes you can upgrade with the 4670. Assuming you have the pcie slot free.

It should be able to run fine on the 300 watt, but it's very borderline. Also, you don't need to take it to someone to upgrade it for you. Just plug the card into the empty slot.

Well, this depends on what you're trying to do. Play games? Regular work? Dual monitors?

Uh, Bios. (f1)?. Then go under graphics/similary named category, Onboard graphics, and hit disable.
