Yes you should be able to install that card in the DC7600 as it is a low profile graphics card, however i would think about upgrading the power supply as 240 watts might be a struggle for the computer.
Then it looks like you have either a faulty hard drive, or a corrupt windows installation..
If you cant boot your PC, you may need to buy a new hard drive.
You can fit your old hard drive later to recover any files you dont want to loose, you can do this internally or with a usb hard drive caddy
The motherboard of your computer has two IDE and two SATA connections. There is no upper limit of the drive size (at least nothing you have to worry about if you have WInXP, Vista or Linux installed)
Attention!!! - I heard from many people that HP (Compaq) has disabled the SATA connectors on your motherboard (ASUS A7V8X-LA)!!! If you want to be on the safe side (and I would definitely recommend that) go and get an IDE drive. There are many good drives around with 500GB of storage.
If you have any more questions, just come back here and leave a comment - I'm happy to help.
