Default Revamp the old, buy new, or build new?

I'm still using the desktop computer I've had for years. There's a problem with the motherboard that necessitated the purchase of a graphics card. The computer runs a lot more slowly these days than it did when it was new, of course.

If I buy a new motherboard, will I get more RAM capacity? Or is RAM capacity completely unrelated? I have as much RAM as can fit in here. This computer's been a good one, and it would be nice to simply upgrade it (which costs a lot less) than buy new, or build a new one (which I don't know how to do anyway).

What's the best way to increase the power of this HP PC?
