This is my machine as it stands at the moment. I want to upgrade the ram and the graphics card, I would like to know if anyone has ever done it with this machine before and how I can get the best performance for low cost.

this is the graphics card I was looking at that a local computer tech suggested. if someone knows of something better for cheaper link it please. That you know will work.

I would recommend this gpu, but your ram selection is good.
