You need a 64-bit OS for more then 4GB ram. Your one is a 32-bit and support 4GB minus some KB reserved for Hardware = 3.22GB

You are running windows XP 32-bit, due to operating system addressing constraints a 32-bit operating system can not address more than 3.2GB ram, you need to get a 64-bit version of windows, windows 7 or windows 8 would be best...

As for a video card, what resolution is your monitor?? Do you play games? What games?

In that case if you have a reliable 400+ Watt PSU get something like a HD7770(sapphire has an awesome version thats very quite and cool)

Any Graphics card larger would be a waste of money for your use...

Just give me your PSU specs so that I can check if you have the required PCI-e power connector and high enough Wattage... But i am sure you do.
