Default Upgrading my old Dell

Alright. So I plan on getting a entire new system very soon, but for the future and mainly for my brother I want to upgrade this thing. Here is what I have so far. Oh, and my budget is $300.

Dell PCP&C 410w $120

My current PSU fan is the loudest fan I have ever heard and I have to kick the side of my computer for it to shutup.

512mb DDR333 Corsair Value $40

This will make it 1GB and no this thing can't go to DDR400.

The real problem I have is figuring out which video card to buy? Currently there is a TI4400 in here. I was thinking a 7600GS? I haven't been keeping up on video cards recently, well not the low end-mid range ones. I was thinking about getting an X1600PRO but again I have no idea which is really good? It must be AGP 4X/8x.

I'm getting a Samsung 226BW before I complete my other build so yeah, just a side note.

Alright Thanks.
