Replacement/upgrade hard and video card

HP Recommended
hp pro 3500 series mt
Microsoft Windows 7 (32-bit)

I've received a desktop tower shell.  No hard drive, no memory, and also no hdmi ports.  I'm a savvy "beginner" to computer repair. But nonetheless a beginner.  I Would appreciate advice in respect to hard drive replacement to factory original, or a step above factory original. Same with memory and video card. And thanks for any info or advice in advance! a blank page welcomes useful insight!

Here is the spec page for that PC

https://support.hp.com/us-en/product/hp-pro-3500-microtower-pc/5270849/document/c03364089

Here is the general service manual

The hard drive appears to be any 3.5" SATA 6.0 Gb/s up to 2TB.

Graphics is Integrated in the CPU, but there is also a PCI Express x16 slot.  Check the manual and power supply for possible upgrades.
