OS: Windows 7 Home Premium

AMD Athlon II 640 Quad-Core Processor

Hiya Nelz

I think it would be a good idea to contact HP and find out what Motherboard you have and what PSU was put in your Desktop and/or HP should be able to give you your full Spec / product web page.

Are you sure that's right? You say the computer has an AMD processor yet the board has an LGA775 for an Intel processor.

You need to find out if the board has a PCI Express x16 slot. If it does, then we know you can upgrade the graphics card.

If you're wondering what it looks like, Google image search brought this up.
