Default Upgrading my Old Dell Dimension 4600

I have a old 2003 Dell machine, 512 DDR memory and an NVIDIA 64mb AGP 8x graphics card and I want to upgrade both. What is the best for my old Dell computer?

What kind of processor is it? We don't want to bottle neck it with really good parts.

Can I put a GDDR3 graphics card in when the motherboard memory only takes DDR memory?
