What model is your PSU?
I need the model number and maker.
If it's not a quality power supply, then it will likely be unreliable and need to be upgraded in order to add a video cad to you system.
What case is this?
If it's a low profile case then most video cards may not fit.

As for RAM and video card..
Newegg.com - G.SKILL 4GB (2 x 2GB) 240-Pin DDR2 SDRAM DDR2 800 (PC2 6400) Dual Channel Kit Desktop Memory Model F2-6400CL5D-4GBNT
Newegg.com - HIS H577FL1GD Radeon HD 5770 1GB 128-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 2.1 x16 HDCP Ready CrossFireX Support Video Card

You may need a power supply too..
Newegg.com - OCZ ModXStream Pro 600W Modular High Performance Power Supply compatible with Intel Sandybridge Core i3 i5 i7 and AMD Phenom

These parts together cost $160 after rebates and discounts.
