Call your local computer store and ask the same question. They will probably suggest the hardware to do it with (and requirements). If they don't please ask, no point in buying useless hardware. You will get the software with the hardware (like most products). That's your best bet, because they can look at your computer too if you're unsure if you have the requirements.
