Help upgrading graphics card, please

I've never built my own PC, though in the future I'd like to. I figure I'd start small and try upgrading the video card on a prebuilt PC I bought last year. This is the PC.

Here are my questions.

1. Do I have to pick an AMD GPU since the CPU is AMD?
2. Am I limited in anyway other than power supply? (Such as CPU power, case design, etc)
3. What are some options in a range of prices I could browse?
4. Would I need any special tools?

Thanks so much!
