Upgrading Graphics Card and RAM

HP Recommended
Microsoft Windows 11

I would like to upgrade my PC's Ram and Graphics card.
I have a 4095MB NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1650 SUPER (HP)
on a HP 8643 (AM4) mother board also know as Erica. 
AMD Ryzen 5 3500 
Windows 11 64 bit 
and one PC4-25600 (DDR4-3200) 8.00GB Single-Channel ram 

Can someone help or direct me to compatible upgrades?
i really want 16 to 32gb of ram and a RTX 30** Graphics Card!

@beats1212,

 

According to HP Desktop PCs - motherboard specifications, Erica | HP® Customer Support, here are your max processor and RAM specs:

The only thing that isn't clear, is what wattage power supply do you have?  If it is a 500 watt PSU, you can go as high as an RTX 3050, maybe an RTX 3060, but that would be pushing it: you would risk GPU down-throttling when graphics power demands surges during gaming.

Hope this was helpful.

 

Kind Regards,
