Doesn't appear this motherboard has an AGP expansion slot, so you're not going to be able to update the graphics. It uses DDR RAM PC2700. You'll probably want to add another 256MBm, here's some prices:

YES! I'm sorry, I somehow forgot about PCI graphics cards <_<
You won't be able to get a top-of-the-line card, but you should be able to find a nice upgrade. :D

Let us know what you're considering.

That would be a very good choice <_<

Yes :D Your Celeron operates at 533mhz Front Side Bus speed, same as PC2100. I usually recommend PC2700 becasue it's about the same price, better quality, and provides some room for upgrade or overclocking.
