    Yes.

    1Gb, or 1024Mb. The best slim card is the 9800GT, however you'll need a good power supply. Grab an HD5570; best low-profile low-power card.
    also is there room for extra ram expansion?
    Usually, it depends on the motherboard.

  2. Going along with what Shadow wrote, what are you trying to accomplish with this upgrade? Gaming, general use, etc?
  3. According to this;
    http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/document?docname=c01559160&cc=us&dlc=en&lc=en&jumpid=reg_R1002_USEN
    Your PSU is 160w which is extremely low. Honestly I wouldn't recommend adding even a low power video card if that number isn't a typo.
  4. According to this it has a PCI-e slot http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/document?docname=c01321559&tmp_task=prodinfoCategory&lc=en&dlc=en&cc=us&lang=en&product=3818759 so it can be upgraded most likely with a low profile card. Maybe this one http://www.ebuyer.com/search?q=hd5570&x=69&y=13
    The ram can be upgraded to 4GB using 2x2GB
  5. Oh schnap, 160Watts? That's wayyy too low. Their TDP is 90Watts, that's only 70 for the rest of your system.
