motherboard - k8m800m (no idea what that means, lol)

Socket 754... Ouch!

1. AMD does not support DDR2. PC3200 is the max that AMDs support.

2. The best you can afford, nVidia or ATI is personal preference.

3. For what they want for one, it should.

4. Advice? Ditch both it and your mobo and get a socket 939.

5. Now. Socket 754 is just a really, really bad dream.

6. Look at the DFI Lanparty mobos, those that have the nForce4 chips. The 939s are coming down in price, and the DFIs overclock like crazy... see where this is going? Everything else will transfer over.

Is your RAM a single stick, or a matched pair? If it is a single, get another one so you can utilize the dual-channel RAM offered by the 939s.
