Your computer is getting old enough to start thinking about building a new one if time and money permits. The gig of ram would be good, and i would pick one of these two video cards but that would be all i would spend on the computer. The new motherboards are using DDR2 memory and PCI-E video cards so most of your hardware in the computer would not be useable in a new build.

Ouch with the limited budget and the lack of backwards capabilities in your hardware start saving for something new and shiny.
