Motherboard won't support a 1066 FSB Core 2 CPU, or any Core 2 CPU from what I can tell.

The Palit 9500 is a PCI-E card, the board is AGP, so no on that.

Board takes DDR, not DDR2 and only has 2 slots. http://www.asus.com/999/html/events/mb/socket478/p4p800s-se/overview.htm

That platform is getting old and there is not really a way to upgrade it that makes economic sense. Maybe another gig of DDR might help, but I would be hesitant to spend money on that unless it was dirt cheap.

EDIT: Likely not enough room to add much more memory to that system.
