this has been answered many times,
you get more green blocks by getting Rep points from other users when they give you positive rep if you give good helpful usable information. its completely community based, has nothing to do with your post count.

For most video cards you'll need a PCI-e x16 or PCI-e x16 2.0 port on your motherboard. We'll also need your powersupply specs and budget.
