  1. you can not do what you are thinking of

    there is no compatibility with desk top cases , or add in cards like a graphics card
  2. What is your budget? If you are just trying to play things like Minecraft, TF2, Gmod, things like that, you can make a very decent $500-$600 computer that will give you easily 50+ FPS in those games
