  1. If you have the money and space for the psu, i don't see why not, just remember to buy a psu from a quality brand like antec,xfx,seasonic,corsair,ocz.
  2. I don't think you can put a normal psu in that case. Read this http://www.tomshardware.com/forum/350403-28-acer-aspire-x1430g-speed-processor
  3. It appears to have a Mini ATX PSU. Not going to get much more wattage out of this size of PSU but here is a 300 watt model from FSP.

    Consider not upgrading the PSU and getting either a Nvidia GTX 650 (non TI version) or a AMD 7750 as these are 45 watt cards which are right at max for your power supply.
