Same thing, and it depends if it's integrated video or not

Edit: Do you know your specs, or have a picture of the back of your pc?

they are the same. And you're confused as to what a cpu is, the cpu is the processor, i think you mean the case and everything in it. If you have one it's in a pci or agp slot the bottom back side of your mobo. Remove the screw mounting it to your case, pull it out carefully of the pins.

I really don't know anything about that, but out of the selection of video cards, get either of the Nvidia's depending on your budget.
