Hi kapitan, for starters the AGP is faster than a PCI. Yes, you can upgrade to 512MB. There is a direct path to the CPU when using an AGP video card.
Elite Group has 2 P4M800-M7's. One is version 1.0 & 3.1.
Though both boards are very similar they are different when it comes to CPU support.
When you view the main pages for you're Elite Group P4M800-M7. Look to the left for CPU Supported & click it. I'll list both boards along with their link to supported CPU list. You will need to find the version number (on the board) in order to pick the correct CPU supported per version number.
Link 1, Version Number 1.0
CPU's supported. V1.0
Link 2, Version 3.1
CPU's supported V3.1
Depending on the version number you can reach CPU of 3.8MHz.
Hope this was helpful.
Feel free to ask if you need more service.

Hi jora, it is all based on what version you're motherboard is!
EliteGroup states the P4M800-M7 v3.1 does support the dual core CPU. (It does not mention this in the manual but does state this on their main web site for the motherboard P4M800-M7 (ver 3.1). (This link).
EliteGroup, supported CPU's for P4M800-M7 (ver 3.1)
However, EliteGroup P4M800-M7 (ver1.0) does not support dual core CPU's. (This link)
Supported CPU's (v1.0) (This link).
So you need to find the version number of you're board.

You could go as high in memory as you can find. You need to stay with the AGP bus though. Newegg has a good bunch of 512 mb AGP cards some even have DDR3 and that caught my attention.They'll set you back between 50 to 100 bucks for the realy good ones.

Do you see any text at all when booting up? If so, try pressing F8 on reboot to get to the Windows Boot menu. It's not real apparent when you are supposed to do this, so once the system gets past the initial Power on Self Test, start tapping it. Select Safe Mode and see if your display loads. Set your video settings to something safe and simple like 1024 x 768. Reboot to normal Windows and begin bumping your video settings up from there until you get them where you want them.

Are both chips identical ? if so
Take out the ram and replace it one stick at a time in the socket 0 or 1
If both sets of Ram work then check your instruction book on the motherboard and see what is the maximum ram it will take .
Get a copy of Memtest86+ from www.memtest.org
and run it on both chips , that will show if there is any errors on them.
