Default upgrading my PC


my PC at the moment is quite the beast (NOT), this is due to me being on a tight budget since im and unemployed student

im currently running:

RZ series motherboard 8vm533m-RZ-(C) (only supports DDR266/DDR200)(but says it can hold up2 2gb ram?!)
512mb memory
2.4ghz P4 (low but all i really need)

and only running 512mb memory
and would like to update to 2gb...
will I be able to find 1gb DDR266/DDR200 1gb memory 184 pin ( i havnt been able to find any)

and if not, what motherboard should i upgrade to,
and if i do upgrade my motherboard, will i need to upgrade anything else (powersupply, cpu blah blah blah)
