First thing you need to get is some more RAM, 1 gig would do nicely but you should be able to get away with 512MB

Then spend the rest on a graphics card, which one do you have at the moemnt?

A graphics card will give the best upgrade. You don't say if you have a motherboard with an agp slot or pci express, this is the deciding factor in what card you can get.

with that processor you probably have a agp graphics. I suspect that you need both more ram and a good agp graphics card.

How much would 1gig of ram be?

S3 ProSavage8™ integrated (1 AGP slot available for upgrade)

3 PCI slots (1 i think available)
