Windows 7 is software, so isn't limited to certain motherboards, CPUs, etc etc etc

You'll be able to install it, but I am not sure how well it will actually run. Generally you want 2gb RAM minimum for an OS any newer than XP, and even then XP would be somewhat sluggish.

That board can only take a maximum of 2 GB,
To be honest with you, adding ram and buying W7 for that computer is a waste of money, better to invest it in a new m/board & cpu, or put it aside for a new computer.

Jonmor is right. You would be much better served by getting a completely new system in this case, rather than upgrading bits and pieces of what you've got now.
