You want to be looking at at least, at VERY least 1GB of ram, any lower than that will be slow especially on Vista. Jack it up to 1GB of RAM and if possible an nVidia 7600GT (very, very good cheap card). Stick with XP, and be wise - only upgrade to Vista when you absolutely have to. At the moment you should only have Vista if you want your monitor to look like the tellytubbies.
