What about the video card? Should I scrap it and just use onboard? I am going to upgrade to 1GB RAM so it shouldn't be too bad. I don't much experience with onboard video can anyone tell me if it is shit or not? Does it most of the time support 32bit color and a decently large resolution. Something like 1024 x 768 or above? Is this video card overkill for just watching videos online and web surfing? Watching videos and such will be the most graphically instense this system will do.

Decided to change cards.

It is either that ^ or onboard.

Yes, it will all work together.

The X1550 will be much better than the onboard video.
