    Your motherboard can only support so much ram. Plus it has to be a specific type.

    What currently is popular for video cards is the PCIExpress cards. You'll want a fair bit of onboard memory. All newer computers should have a PCIe slot which may or may not already be filled.

    You need to know some basic things about you motherboard before you can begin to choose RAM and a video card.

    One recommendation for you. Instead of spending money on upgrading your computer to a HTPC, check out a Tvix Media Player.

    Just do a search and see what you think.
