4gb Would be more than maxing out the RAM limit of WinXP which isn't bad, plus its enough when and if you move over to Vista(which from what I know is a piece of junk for a OS)
I would go with 4gb. As far as video cards go, you can go for either the 9800x2, incredibly overpriced best card on the market but its understandable, the Ultras were also stupidly overpriced and not very cost-effective when they first came out aswell.
I would wait for whatever GT200 card that nVidia is planning to release soonish. That card is supposedly going to be the 9900 line and be the most powerful.
