Crucial memory states and guarantees that 32GB is the max installed memory for the PC's motherboard.

Use the how to choose a discrete video card sticky in the upgrade section. See the following link.

http://h30434.www3.hp.com/t5/Desktop-Hardware-and-Upgrade-Questions/Guide-for-Selecting-a-Discrete-V...

There is a description, including an image,  of how to measure to see if a card you are looking at will fit.

 

Use a modular PSU to keep the cables at a minimum. The Corsair Builder series is a good choice for that.

See the following sticky to see how to choose a PSU. NewEgg.com PSU selection.

An ATX PSU will fit in yours. The PSU you choose needs to have a six-pin PCIe power connector to power the video card.

OK.

I still suggest installing a PSU that has the PCIe connectors. If you want to install something better in the future you won't have to worry about the PSU.
