Your RAM is expandable to 4GB. 400-MHz and 533-MHz DDR2 unbuffered SDRAM is your type.
For your graphics card, you may use either a PCI slot or PCIeX slot. You'll get the best performance if you use the PCUeXpress slot.Price would be determined by the vendor from which you purchase it. Installation is as simple as installing the drivers from the CD that comes with it and pushing the card into the slot after you have turned off the PC and removed the cover. Instructions for that can be found at
I use nVidia cards myself and find them reliable and easy to configure. Let me know if you have any other questions. Please rate my answer.
