Well first of all, you dont add video ram to a video card. The ram is soldiered onto the video card. In order to upgrade your video ram, you will have to replace the video card. Doing so will benefit you in any 3-d applications (games) you run. If you arent much of a gamer, you probably wont benefit at all, if you are a gamer, a new video card can breathe a whole new life into your old computer.

A video card can be added, but the memory can't be expanded enough to create a decent gaming computer.

Also with the video card upgrade it plays quite alot of mid-range games perfectly fine!

You will have purchase NVidia video card and install it in your computer. But be careful make sure that your computer supports upgrade you are about to do. Modern video cards require at least PCI-E x16 port. As result not all computers even new support video upgrade from onboard video to dedicated video card.

I believe you can get PCI, PCI-X or AGP video capture cards. Each card would need the corresponding slot, such as an AGP card would require an AGP slot.
