Is my pc capable of having Feature 1GB video memory for lush images?
Is it capable of having technology which automatically speeds up your processor when your PC needs extra performance.
Will I be able to add 1gb of memory ram to make it faster.
If I play a lot of video games, will it over heat.

There is even a passively cooled HD4850 for $129 on there.
No, you wouldn't be able to add more video memory later. If you wanted more video memory, you would have to choose a card that comes with more memory already installed.
I am a little confused about your system memory, I see you have listed the PC has 8 gigs of ram, then the next thing says 4 gigs. Either way, you won't be able to use more than 3.25 GB of ram with a 32 bit operating system. If you want more ram, consider upgrading to a 64bit OS.
I don't believe the Q8200 is capable of boosting its speed automatically. Some of the newer Intel CPU's have turbo, but they require a newer motherboard.
As for overheating, I would not get a passively cooled video card. I would grab a card with a good fan, preferably one that is dual slot and will vent out the back of your case.
A Quick Google reveals your mobo has a Pcie socket so Yes you can fit the card,
but I'd look at upgrading the psu if you are getting a better, more power hungry gfx card in there.
And I noticed it says Socket Am3? not with an Intel chip in it.....
Yes, your graphics card will heat up as it works hard to give you your lush graphics, The heatsink and or fan on it should deal with that though, its what they are there for.
You dont generally add ram to gfx cards, if you want a 2Gb card, you buy a 2Gb card and you have plenty of system ram there for any game.
And your pc will speed up the processor or slow it according to demands to its maximum rated speed, which, looking at your post is a dualcore chip with 2 processors running at a max of 2.5GHz.
Hope this helps you some.
All else I can advise is read up on here for your mobo and proc, learn what you have in that box under your desk
lol, HP writes AM3 socket on an Intel PC... They should just stick to printers.
Yes the videocard will work IF you put in at least a 500W power supply such as an Antec, thermaltake, OCZ or other. (I recommend a 500W Thermaltake tr2 as they aren't to expensive and I have never seen an issue with any Thermaltake psu.
Besides that, you will have to make sure that:
The Power Supply used in the HP is a Standard Sized PSU as some brands like to use some really weird sized ones.
That the case has enough space for the videocard.
I would personally recommend that you bring your computer to a local computer store and tell them you want to change videocard and PSU.
Should cost you under 200$ for both with service and you turn the performance gain will be MASSIVE compared to running an incapable Intel Onboard Video.
