Hi.

Maybe you can upgrade your GPU, BUT before you need check if your case is ATX, the GPU could not fit on your case. And also check you PSU, you need extra power for your new GPU.

Best solution

You've got the PCIe x16 slot, so the motherboard will support it.

As Saint mentioned, you need to find out what kind of PSU you have. Look for a label on it that lists the wattage and how many amps are on the 12v rail(s).
