The only limit is how much you're willing to spend.

Also what is the make and model of your power supply?

For new RAM get a matched set of 2x4GB. The system will use what it need for graphics. Also you'll have to be aware of the length of your card. I am guessing you have a small case since you have a micro ATX board?
I will reiterate what stormy13 said about the PSU, you'll need a larger one I suspect and of good quality, Corsair, Seasonic, or Antec make good ones.
This is a PSU example. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16817139010

How many watts is your main computer power supply unit (PSU) rated at 500, 600, 700, 800, etc ?

A nice basic video card is the Radeon 7750, but it's not for gamers... You can pick it up for about $100 and it's got 1GB of DDR5. What do you want to use the card for?
