  1. you will NOT be able to add DDR 3 to that motherboard.

    that would require new motherboard and CPU.

    also note if you have a 32bit version of windows you also will not be able to use more than ~4gb of RAM. video card should be fine however
  2. if its windows 7 then a 32bit OS will show 4GB but leave you with 3.5 usability, to be able to use 4GB's or more ram, you'll need to move onto windows 7 64bit OS.

    yeap, move to a new architecture instead of shelling out on a new mobo for existing hardware.
