Yes you can and it won't be a load on the soundcard and motherboard.

>> Whats the max power of the speakers you recommend not to exceed?

That is not a problem.  Your power is limited by the output from the sound chip on the motherboard.  And that is usually very small.  Anything sold as computer speakers will usually be satisfactory.  If these speakers are for home use you should be looking at amplified speakers.  These have their own amplifier in them and connect to wall power and you will get decent levels of sound out of them.  Otherwise expect the sound to be not as loud as you would like.
