My PC at the moment is...CRAP... I have a Dell Dimension 2400 and I want to upgrade the graphics card. If i bought a top of the range graphics card, would my PC be able to take it, or would I have to by new seperate parts in order to make it work properly?

Dimension 2400 = no AGP slot.

The best you can do is to get a PCI graphics card, which ain't that great.

You're better off saving your money and building a new system... one that you could actually upgrade.
