Yes it's easy. Today's graphics cards go in the PCIe x16 slots on your motherboard. (The long white/red slots in this picture are PCIe x16 slots.) There are three PCIe x16 slots on this motherboard. One is white and the other two are dark blue.

Have a look at this video card. There are gold colored teeth at the bottom of it. That's what plugs into the PCIe x16 slot.

Motherboards come in different size classes (not just sizes). All motherboards within a size class will have the screw holes in the same place, so you don't have to worry. As long as the motherboard has a PCIe x!6 slot and there is enough room in your computer case, you can put any PCIe x16 graphics card in it.
