The only graphics card you could buy are the really old PCI ones but it's very doubtful that you'd get enough performance to run the game.
Best bet is to get a new motherboard with an AGP slot.

No you won't lose your stuff. You might want to reinstall Windows just to make sure you don't run into any problems but you don't have to.

I'm English so i've no idea of the prices over the pond.
