Angry Graphics card built into motherboard

I'm running a Pentium G2020 and its getting to be too old/slow and the only thing truly holding it back is the 25 cent video card thats built into the motherboard, with that said i have no pcie connectors and im wanting to put MSI Global N760 TF 4GD5/OC
inside it, would getting a better power supply come with the pcie cords or should i unplug the fan now and watch it burn.

another question is would the graphics card im looking at click into the computer like ram does and simply work, ive never played with graphics cards before

Yes, a better PSU would come with the necessary connections (a 6-pin and a 8-pin graphics power connectors. This one comes with two 8-pin (6+2) PCI-E connectors.

The card would mount in the top PCI-E slot and will require you to remove the top two slot covers from the rear of the case.
