Hi:

 

I would get a used  but tested and working AMD Radeon HD 6570 or Radeon HD 6450 on eBay.

 

The HD 6570 is more powerful than the HD 6450.

 

You can get one pretty cheap nowadays.

 

Here is the link to the service manual...

The graphics card has its own onboard memory, and has no bearing on your PC's memory.

 

Suggested cards...These were the cheapest I could find from sellers with good feedback...

Yes.

 

That one should be fine.

 

It is going to cover the battery and one of those smaller black PCIe x 1 slots though.

 

The video card in the black slot next to the white one at the top of the picture, so it is going to be a tight fit.

Hi:

 

Yes, you can move the wireless card to the other little slot next to it.

 

Where are the antenna cables?  Did you take them off?
