No. An add-on PCI graphics card with it's own memory will dramatically improve the performance of this computer. I know because I've done it. You can dig around on ebay and find an older card that was higher-end "back in the day" for basically, peanuts.
In your digging around about this emachines T1105, did you by any chance figure out exactly what socket it has, and what CPU the BIOS would support? It looks like only a 1.1ghz max, which isn't worth the effort of upgrading from a 1.0. I

forget the entire agp business, the agp onboard video is nothing compared to what you get with the dedicated card. You can also install several versions of Linux on this machine, eliminating the need for resource hungry anti-spyware,anti-virus, etc. With a good PCI video card, Xfce or LXDE, and 512mb Ram, this machine would still make a good browser and emailer. According to what I've seen, you should be able to run 512mb on it.
