New graphic card

Have a Dell Dimension 4550 and here are the specs:

Architecture: DDR SDRAM
Memory connectors: two
Memory Capacities: 128-,256-, and 512-MB non-ECC DDR SDRAM
Minimum memory: 128MB
Maximum memory: 1GB
Memory Type DDR 333 (non-ECC)
BIOS address: F8000h

It has an AGP Slot but I am not sure if it a 2.0 or higher

I want to install a NVIDIA GeForce FX5700LE 256MB AGP 8x Video Card w/TV & DVI. Will my system be able to handle this new card? I think I will have to up grade my PSU. But besides that will it fit with my current system?

If your desktop is a Dell Dimension 2400 then this is the technical specs for the RAM.
Memory
Architecture
DDR SDRAM
Memory connectors
two
Memory capacities
128-, 256-, or 512-MB
Minimum memory
128 MB shared DDR SDRAM
NOTE: Between 32 and 64 MB of system memory may be allocated to support graphics, depending on system memory size and other factors.
Maximum memory
2 GB
Memory type
PC2100 (266-MHz) or PC2700 (333-MHz) DDR SDRAM (non-ECC)

The RAM modules are held in place with clips on the ends of the RAM modules. Push each clip down and away from the RAM modules and the RAM module will lift up.
To install the RAM modules, the RAM modules have a notch and can only be installed one way. Place the RAM module in the memory slot and push down until the locking clips swing up. You may need to push the clips into the sides of the memory modules to lock and secure the memory modules.

The price of the RAM depends upon the size of the RAM you want to install. I suggest a minimum of 1Gb of RAM and the maximum to can install is 2Gb of RAM.

Check the prices of RAM on the Internet and in the computer stores.

Graphics card upgrade


Not compatable at all.
DDR SDRAM memory uses 184 Pin Dimms
Double-Data-Rate Synchronous Dynamic Random Access Memory, better known as DDR SDRAM or DDR RAM for short, is a type of very fast computer memory. DDR RAM is based on the same architecture as SDRAM, but utilizes the clock signal differently to transfer twice the data in the same amount of time.

DDR2 SDRAM uses 240 Pin Dimms.
DDR2 SDRAM improves on DDR SDRAM by using differential signaling and lower voltages to support significant performance advantages over DDR SDRAM.

If your question has to do with buying a video card that is going to use DDR2 ram, that would be a faster graphics card. You can also get video cards with DDR3 ram which again is even faster.
Oddly enough in respect to system memory DDR2 is supposed to be faster than DDR yet the DDR memory cost more than the DDR2. Go figure.

Graphics card update


Step one is go to Dell and check the motherboard specifications.
Step two is go to pricewatch.com and (among the zillion of cards) select the one you can afford (select based on AGP rate...this sites takes a lot of the search out of the process).
Step three (and I forget where it is but you can google for it) there is a site (actually a couple) where you input your equipment, cpu, motherboard, etc.....and it calculates the power supply required.

As for good cards...the less expensive generic cards I have had no problems with...most use the same chip sets....doing a comparison of that can save more than just a couple bucks if looking for a real high end gamers video card. One thing I would suggest though is to balance the cpu and memory...particularly since DDR is cheap. Here are a couple of examples.
An old p3 850 htz machine with 256 mb memory is balanced. But that amount of memory on an Xp2800 machine is too little...256 and 128 are needed for balanced performance....meaning neither the cpu is waiting nor the memory is being underutilized (i.e. you get only a "nits" worth of improvement by going to two 512 although one 512 will give you a bit of a boost....say 4-6% improvement in response time. The sellers of PC...particularly bundled....almost always don't put enough memory and always put too much bloatware on the machines....getting rid of the latter (and particularly anything that is active in memory) can give you a boost you may not believe. Ccleaner (free) to fix the registry and Spybot to keep malware from being active plus Hijackthis will allow you to keep your machine at peak....you might want that since you (am guessing) are into either games or some real sophisticated editing.

Hope this helps....whoops...one last thought....these high end video cards do give you some super quick response but....very few games require that (of the total number of games out there) and with bus, cpu and memory speed improvements you might just be better off paying the same amount of money for a mobo bundle...(in fact I think you would be).....but that is your research project....lol.....not mine.
