Shell is gonna need a laptop soon and the only way i can live with that is if i drop a few bucks into my machine too.
It has 8gb ram but can go to 16gb.
How do i find out what kind of ram sticks i need.
Also i wanna put a cheap little graphics card in but i dont wanna spend much.
Problem with i dunno what kind to buy.
Keep in mind i have a smaller sized computer case.
What size case is this?
What kind of graphics cardz fit?

DDR3 ram, and as far as video cards it has to be slimline in that case.

if you take the cover off you can fit any card in there that the PCI slot fits.

Thats how I have my AI server setup. heating is controlled with a boxfan sometimes but the system fans seem to work most of the time.

just buy what fits in the motherboard and wont fall out from being too heavy

I am going to look into all this after the new year.
Due to my outrageous $281 electric bill I am now piss poor.

If I happen to get a THIRD GPU for my AI training/gaming rig Ill send you my old gtx780 i think it is. it can run ARMA3 at a reasonable setting actually and can at least run fallout 3 on highish settings.

although the cpu on that one was an 15-7400 so that might have helped

You really might as well look into it now and have a really informed decision when the time comes. I had to wait like a month before I even settled on what I wanted, then another 3 weeks after that to GET what I wanted. Totally worth it though, because for $170 I got hardware that blows my old shit out of the water, and has enough room to upgrade that I'll be running this rig for at least 5 years.

It won't work in your case or with your PSU, but okay. Have fun with your paperweight :)
