Well yes, you can purchase a Video Card that has HDMI on it, and that would work, the Motherboard has an upgrade slot for a video card, just look for a : PCI Express x16 video card and you should be good.
Hope I answered your question.

You could add HDMI out if you added a separate PCI Express video card that supported it. Your new video card would then operate the graphics for the computer, bypassing the motherboard's built in graphics capability. This is actually more efficient, since most separate graphics cards have much better performance specs than motherboard graphics do. The motherboard graphics also have to share the computers main RAM, whereas most video cards have anywhere from 256 MB to 2 GB of high speed special video RAM.

You can also buy a cable adaptor, from walmart, that connects the pc to a HDTV.
In the Search box at the top of the page, type in "dvi-d dual to high" without the quotation marks; there are 4 choices of cables that will work, in various lengths.
Hope this helps.

You are safe. The virus from you old PC resides in the old disk drive, not in the ram. The ram only houses information when the system is powered on.

Virus's to the best of my knowledge only corrupt the hard disk. Unless they can damage the protocol that controls the voltages in the memory itself? I doubt it will have any effect on your computer. Besides this system comes with a 60 day trial of Norton.

First of all, make sure that your old RAM will work with this new computer...there are many varieties and speeds of RAM. As to viruses, no worry, RAM does not carry any data once the electrical charge is gone. Any viruses you had remain on your old computer's hard drive, not in RAM.

RAM looses all of its information as soon as it looses power. But before you install it in the computer make sure it's compatible. There are sites that tell you what ram is compatible with your motherboard.

Question

Will this Desk-top AMD Athlon II 640 Quad-Core, update with a wireless card for home use

Want to be able to move the set-up into different rooms for ease of use, so would like to add the wireless card. I realize that I would have to move the tower as well as the other equipment, but life would be so much easier if I could move from the bdroom w/o having to go into the attic to move the hook-up to another room.

You could purchase one and put it in there your self, but you'd have to find one that is a pci express x1 slot.Or you could go a simpler way and buy a wifi adapter from Walmart they are about 20-40$ and you just plug it into a USB on your computer.
Hope I answered your question.

This computer could take either a wireless PCI Express card or a USB wireless dongle. The nice thing about the USB dongle is that you can use it on different computers by simply unplugging it, whereas the PCI express card is a fairly permanent modification to your computer.

Dual core processors feature two processing cores and Quad core processors feature four processing cores. More processing cores means that the processor can process data more quickly and efficiently.

This is a spec sheet from HP and if you read it it says up to 16GB.
Less for a 32 bit system but this is 64 bit so it can go up to 16GB

Yes has VGA and DVI outputs. Also look into monitors or tv's with mulitple inputs like one with a tv tuner, with a vga connection, cable input, and composite, componet, and Hdmi inputs. I bought a HDTV 22 inch wide screen that has all these for less than $240. I can watch tv with an antenna, or switch to my computer, or to my dvd player, or xbox 360

This computer will undoubtedly work with any printer drivers that are compatible with Windows 7. The maker of your printers should provide current drivers for that operating system. I would check with the printer manufacturer about printer drivers.
