yea i was going to use more ram but 1gb is what i had
Yup, that about sums it up. You'll need a better PSU for any dedicated graphics card (which is a great upgrade).
Also, I definitely recommend getting more ram. Just get whatever's on sale if you want to max out size before speed, although there is the option of getting the best of both worlds

Get an Antec 1200, instead of the 900. Micro Center has one for $129.99 USD. which is better than what you would pay for the "lower tier" Antec 900 (which they also have in stock for $140)
