    It appears that you do not have a video card, the video system being integrated into the motherboard.

    Yours is a chip on the motherboard. If you had an actual graphics card, the connection where you connect your monitor would be down in one of those looks like 7 horizontal slots - one of which you don't have a cover over.

    You can install a graphics card that will be used instead of the integrated video. If you provide system specs we could provide more details.

    It probably is possible to fit one, bear a few things in mind though.

    you may need a new power supply..
    Some cards are really very good and work on the power the slot provides, but many don't, this may mean that you will need to upgrade your power supply

    You will need to disable your on board card in the BIOS..
    You may or may not know how to do this, may I suggest that if you don't know what you are doing that you get a knowledgable friends to help you, or take it into a suitable (and trustworthy) repair/upgrade shop, they will also be able to give you various options.

    You will probably need to install the new card drivers..
    This is perhaps what you will feel most at home with, if you get a experienced friend/shop to upgrade for you, they will normally do this for you.

    Something like the NV 750/750Ti offer incredible value for money.

    What is the reason you'd like to swap graphics cards?

    To clarify things a little (?): the integrated graphics of that type are built in to the CPU.

    You can add a discrete graphics card and use that instead. (That's common. Many current Intel CPUs have built-in graphics, but a lot of PCs add separate graphics cards to get better performance.)

    The picture isn't good enough for me to be 100% sure, but I think that the black slot is a PCI-E X16 slot. (If you posted your system specs, I wouldn't have to guess.) That's the common interface used for most graphics cards that have been on the market for some time (maybe 10 years).

    Yes, the long card slot nearest the CPU is either the older AGP or the newer PCIe-X16. Have seen motherboards with a PCIe-x1 in that position but still the longer will the PCIe-X16. There are a few motherboards available with 2 PCIe-X16 slots for 2 cards.
