I can install windows 8 on MY pc?? cpu:amd sempron

I don't think you can run Windows 8 on your system.
What Microsoft say are the minimum requirements for a system to run Windows 8 can be found here
First, the processor needs to have certain features - SSE2, NX and PAE which I don't think the Sempron 3000+ has; and you be able to run only the 32-bit version if could run that because you don't have enough RAM, and your processor is a 32-bit processor.
Secondly, the 9250 isn't up to it. It doesn't have WDDM drivers, because it's not a true Direct 9X graphics card; it not being a DirectX 9 card is enough to preclude from running Windows 6 anyway.

Your processor, RAM and graphics card might be upgradeable to be able to support a 32-bit version of W8, but that may be more expensive than buying a (new) W8 computer anyway.

Anyway that's what my brief study of the topic has lead me to believe. It's a no.

On the other hand, see these:
(found by searching the internet with "running windows 8 on a sempron 3000+")
They say "Yes".

So I think more research needs to be done. Note the second article says the system will have terrible performance.

HP h8-1450 PC is freezing

The most likely problem is a Virus, or program incompatibility. Run a good virus checker (such as MalwareBytes) . But also look at the system cooling(unlikely) check the CPU fan and the case fan if you have one. If you don't have a case fan you should get at least one. The FX6000 series can run quite hot. You don't say what program you are running when it freezes, If you are gaming you should run as many fans as you are able to fit. You don't say what Graphics you are running, games are very processor intensive and so the CPU will generate more heat. By fitting a good GPU you will reduce workload on the CPU and so cut the heat generated.

Memory upgarade

Yes, it will work. Remember that all memory will operate at the speed of the slowest memory though so unless you're completely replacing the memory it won't increase the speed of the memory.

Can i run ati radeon x1650 512 on asus k8N motherboard

Yes you can run the AGP version of the Radeon 1650 pro on your system. It is always best & recommended to upgrade memory in pairs. You could upgrade to `gb by purchasing a 1 gb kit which would be 512 x 2. That way you have a matching pair of RAM modules. As for a cpu upgrade you can go to the Asus website and see what cpu's are supported by your motherboard. Hope this helps & please remember to rate my answer. Thanks.
