I will get straight to the point...
Well, you certainly don't need a new computer. As told by www.crucial.com (best memory website ), the your best bet is to get 2x512MB sticks of PC2700. From the looks of your motherboard, i don't think it's dual-channel supported, so you don't need to worry about that.
can i go out and buy any kind of 1 gig memory and just stick it in? Or should i just buy a new computer?
Depending on how much you are willing to spend, I would go with the 6600GT myself. Check out this one... 1 gig of your new memory should handle it.
I was looking for a Nivida card that is 256 mb can anyone point me to the right path on getting a good one?
EDIT: Sorry. Just realized the link sends you to 128MB card and not a 256MB. I don't think there is an AGP 6600GT with more than 128MB.
Nowadays, they kinda do. If you bought a new computer today, there will be so many options for memory upgrade, you will hardly know where to begin. I think the CompUSA guy asked you what computer you had because he was making sure your motherboard wasn't too old to support his suggestions.
the guy at the counter (in Compusa) ask what was my PC so now im confused computers don't take just any old memory or do they?
Hope this answers everything. If you have any follow-up questions, feel free to ask.

Really? Cheapest x800xl AGP with 256MB I could find is $289. The AGP 6600GT is about $100 less. Could you refer me to the site that shows that these two are the same price?
i would get an x800xl as it is the same price as a 256meg 6600GT
My card (which is the budget 6600 'non-GT' as shown below) gets about 11 fps on the 3DMark05. If you got the 6600GT, you could almost double that easy. Although if you can afford it, I'd recommend getting the video card that warriorscot mentioned and you will have astonishing FPS.
If i put 1 gig and new vid card are you guys sure that that will stop with games FPS around 7-9 and little to no CTDs?
