Two years ago i built a comptuer with the help of people on this forum. I go to college next year and jsut want to upgrade my computer for reliability and performance if i decide to get vista. I have a cheap video card( SAPPHIRE 1024-2C50-04-SA Radeon X300SE 128MB DDR PCI Express x16 Low Profile Video Card - OEM) and 2 512 sticks of ddr 400(pc 3200) ram( CORSAIR ValueSelect 1GB (2 x 512MB) 184-Pin DDR SDRAM DDR 400 (PC 3200) Dual Channel Kit Desktop Memory Model VS1GBKIT400 - Retail). My motherboard manual recomends not to fill all 4 ram slots for some reason, but im thinking of getting a 1 gig stick. What cheap(and i mean cheap around 50 bucks-i dont place games on the computer) video card should i get and how much/what ram should i get?

my other specs are a amd 3200+(2.0gh) and a pci-ex16 mothboard

Well the prime spot for price and performance is the 7600 GT.
