You can add another 4 GB stick of RAM to make it 8 GB.

HD 7750 is the best card you can get with your current PSU.

So just to be clear, what your saying is I can add the Graphics Card and RAM you suggested above, without updating/upgrading any other components on my computer, correct?


Yes, without changing any part/components of your computer.

This is great news, I was worried I wouldnt be able to after hearing people tell me I couldnt unless I upgraded my PSU and CPU (Which I cant upgrade the CPU because I was told I couldnt upgrade the CPU since my motherboard is OEM) . So its nice to know there is a Graphics Card out there and RAM that wont require me to change or upgrade other components.

Those components I recommend will run on your computer.
The graphics card does not consume much power and it will run most games fine at mid - high settings and it draws power from the PCI-Express slot.
RAM are also upgradeable up to 16 GB on your motherboard but 8 GB is enough for most users including gamers.
