Buying anything for an AGP system is realistically pointless because it's effectively obsolete now in favour of PCI-Express.
Realistically a 2003 machine isn't going to run anything made today, or if it is it'll do it in its own time, as you've found out. Your other issues may be down to hardware issues that are developing due to the age of the machine.
You are effectively looking at replacing the board, the processor, the memory, the graphics card itself (anything you buy today will be better than the 9800) and possibly the power supply and maybe the hard drive. It will be virtually a new computer.
