if it's the same "brand" ATI/Nvidia, turn off the pc remove the card, replace with the new if you have correct slot available, plug in PSU cables to the card if it needs them, turn on the pc and voila :p

shouldn't need anti static techniques, but if you wanna be sure do that thingy with your finger and at some grounded metal.

You shouldn't really have any trouble fitting it, but I do have one tip. Try and keep your computer in a safer place than just sat on the carpet, because that builds up static and can completely destroy your system.

just out of interest, how can static destroy hardware? Does the electrical charge malfunction the parts or something?

If a sudden surge in charge is higher than the resistance of a component it can damage/destroy that component.
