@Sleezy-e, welcome to the forum.


Here is a video card that will fit nicely into your case and will give you a substantial performance boost.  You can read the "Specifications" Tab for more information on it.  Also, read the Customer Reviews to see what users have to say about it.  I have recommended it to several members of the Forums with no problems.


Here are the SSD's that Crucial Memory recommends for your computer.  If Crucial recommends a product it is guaranteed to work.  There is a good guide on installing their SSD's.  You can contact their Tech Support for help if you need it.
