Your system memory is DDR1. That has nothing to do with your graphics card memory, otherwise there would be no way for anyone to be running GDDR5 graphic cards since system memory is only up to DDR3.

Well, I suppose just about any PCI graphics card would work for you. What to recommend is probably going to depend on what OS you're running. If you're running Windows XP, then I'd probably just recommend the cheapest NVidia Geforce 6200 you can find. If you're running Windows Vista, 7 or 8, then I'd be looking at the Radeon HD5450.

Additionally, if you haven't already, then make sure to upgrade your RAM to the maximum amount of 1GB.

Is there a game in particular you are attempting to play?

It's hard to recommend if we don't know the purpose.

Assuming you want a PCI (not PCIe) video card, this is about the BEST PCI CARD you can get:

You can browse the other "PCI" cards yourself. This card is TWICE as much money as a similar PCIe version but prices on older tech are often higher.

There are a few games you might be able to play with this card and your machine, but obviously nothing high-end. You could try installing this card and running some DEMOS to see what you can get.

You could try Torchlight though I'm not sure if your CPU would be good enough or not.

There are other types of games though, such as Angry Birds which would work fine...
