Your system is old, adding more memory & agp v-card would help alot. Go to board/system manufacture or read system manual to see how much capacity your system will take.
Post the psu specs +3.3v,+5v,+12v open pc case and check psu label.
Your system can't handle modern games well so better play old games.

Sure, upgrade your RAM to 2GB...that alone would make Win7 run approximately 84 times faster.

You could also add a bigger, faster hard drive. Those old 40GB drives are slow, and yours is probably at least half full.

Find a cheap Radeon 9600XT on eBay to give older games a boost and enable Win7 Aero Glass. Anything faster than the 9600XT would be held back by that slowpoke processor and probably overstress the power supply.

If you want to play new games, you'll have to bid that PC adieu and begin anew.
