Yes, your mainboard supports up to 2GB of DDR memory. That does not change if you add a graphic card. Windows XP 32 bit can actually address up to 4 GB of total memory including CD, hard drives, and video cache.
Note: Your mainboard only supports up to 2 GB, but newer boards can support much more memory, up to 16GB of RAM.
If you could install 4 GB of RAM in your machine, it would still work, but windows would only address as much RAM as it can use; the rest would go unused, so it would probably show up as 3.5 GB of RAM then.

I want to buy a graphics card. i want to run programming applications and games with graphics requirements (NFS series), HD support will do but not necessary. My current system : 3.06GHz P4 HT processor,...

The GeForce FX5500 is an AGP Card (which is WAY outdated). Your board has a PCI-Express x16 slot (which is a good thing) so if you are planning to play games in the ilk of the NFS series, you can get an nVidia GT, GTS or GTX series card (I only assume you plan to get an nVidia-branded card; you still have options of purchasing ATI 4000- to 5000-series cards as well). these cards serve the purpose of entry-level to mid-range games. The only limitation of your rig would be the processor since it's a single core; but with 3 GHz & 2GB of RAM, you can play almost the entire NFS series up to Undercover, Shift & World. I'm not sure about Shift 2 & The Run: I think they require 2 cores at least.

I have a Nvidia 9500 GT 1 GB Sparkle Graphic card, the Problem is when I run the games after 2 to 3 Minutes it gets stucked the problem is only while playing games even I have install the latest drivers...

This is almost definately an overheating problem. If the card is the version with a fan, make sure the fan is working and that there is no dust etc. clogging the heatsink fins. If like the picture above, it just has a large heatsink, make sure the fins are clean. Next make sure you have good airflow through the system, you may need to get another fan in the case and point it at the card to keep it cool. Finally, remember that this card isn't really suited to modern games ie. 32 processor cores, low bandwidth memory etc. It will be working very hard to run games. Try reducing the resolution and turning off anti - ailising to reduce the workload. I had the 9500gs and although it did a good job, I ultimately worked it too hard and I had the same problem you are experiencing. I changed mine and bought a Radeon HD5770, no problems now.
Hope this helps.

I got a Geforce FX 5500! i want to know... ''Shader 3''?

Don't think you can with that video card.

  1. Operating system: Windows XP/ Vista
  2. Processor: Intel Pentium 4 or AMD Athlon X2
  3. Memory: 1GB RAM (2GB for Vista)
  4. Free disk space: 10GB
  5. Video card: Shader Model 3.0 and 256MB RAM (nVidia GeForce 6800 GT/ATI Radeon X1600)
  6. Sound card: DirectX 9.0c compatible
The Geforce 5500 does not support Shader Model 3.0
You would have to get atleast a Geforce 6 Series for that Shader model.

Cost of game hardware in india

2GB RAM should be about $100, the same for installation. Your current graphics card meets the specs you provided. An upgraded video card will be about $200 for one that will work, $300 for one that will work well.
