Max is 8Gb using 2Gb sticks per socket of DDR2-667Mhz ram. Given you have 4Gb already, any other memory will only result in a small improvement that wouldn't be noticable often. Do you use any programs that would use 8Gb? Like rendering or something?
If gaming is the objective, you could get a better graphics card. But you will probably also need a new psu. You could reuse the new psu and gpu in a new build if you choose so would not necessarily be a waste of money.
It is doubtful parts will be unavailable, there are plenty of old parts floating around if you know where to look. But the cpu and ram are a deadend or not worth the upgrade.
