Hi:

 

The only upgrade you can do on that PC would be to install the 2 x 2 GB of memory, and maybe replace the 2.5" mechanical hard drive with a 2.5" solid state drive (SSD).

 

The graphics adapter is an integral part of the motherboard, not a removable card, and you already have the best graphics adapter that was offered by HP for the model series.
