    That board supports DDR266 RAM, so you many want to pick up a pair of 256mb sticks of that. Because your're running a P4 1.8 the most i would suggest for a graphics card is the radeon 9800 pro. It may be a good idea to upgrade the cpu also (the board supports 533FSB P4's up to 2.66ghz i think)

    I'd have to say a 9800 Pro or 6600GT would be best suitable for that system. They're both enough to provide you with much better performance now and still be useful when you upgrade other parts of the system.

    If you do replace your RAM, which isn't a bad idea, get PC3200 (DDR400). The cost is no greater than PC2100 (DDR266) and it will actually be useful if you ever replace the motherboard and processor, which would also be a good idea when you can afford to do it.

    Yes, the 256MB one would be the best of the two and would be the only choice for gaming possibilities. You will lose little to no proformance by using 4x AGP.

    I would stick with the 128MB version, frankly in most newer games the 9800 pro cant make use of the additional memory (which comes into play at resolutions of 1280x1024 and above with anti aliasing)

    Where do you come up with this crap?

    I'd pay maybe $15 more for a 256MB version, tops. The only game I've seen actually get performance increase from having more video memory is Doom 3, and that's only when it's run at High or Ultra Quality. Most games won't even have faster loading times with a 256MB card over a 128MB.

    You've used that excuse a couple of times now.
