Your MB has an AGP 4X slot for a graphics adapter. To find a graphics card go to Newegg.com and use the search engine there to find AGP 4X cards.

A good card would be this:

Thanks. I don't suppose the Pentium 4 3.2 Ghz and my 230w power supply would "bottleneck" this graphics card? Also can you please suggest which type of RAM I should choose according to the information above? As far as I know, I only have around 756mb RAM .

Couldn't say on the card sorry, I rarel;y deal with agp stuff hehe :p 
but looking at your info, you need ddr ram, not ddr2 or ddr3, just plain old ddr
and damn that stuffs expensive at the moment :) 
is there a possibility of a new build instead maybe?
whats the pc used for?
if its just surfing etc you shouldn't even need a graphics card to be honest,

The graphics card requires a 400 Watt PS. So you would have to upgrade your power supply to 500 Watts or better. Your processor is plenty fast for this card.

As for RAM, the following would be best for your system based on your MB's specs, which are max 2GB of DDR400 in 2 memory slots:

I don't have the budget to build a new computer at the moment + this current computer works fine... yet I'll probably die if I don't have some form of gaming haha!

Someone else here on the forum suggested this one, said it'll run fine with my 230w power supply, and its pretty cheap too. What do yee guys think?

When Ivy Bridge and Bulldozer come out, then I'll consider a new build.
