Try and get your hands on a Geforce 4 ti 4200. That's one of the best budget cards around on a very limited budget:)
It's getting a bit long in the tooth now but out performs a lot of the lower nvidia and ati cards on the market now.
 
is there any way of telling how bigger a processor i can go to just by looking at the mother board

Well this deal has been on offer at Komplett since last Monday --> http://www.komplett.co.uk/k/ki.asp?action=info&AvdID=&sku=122901&cks=WOF&CatID=&GrpID=. I’m not sure what “lite” means in this case (probably, just a lack of software and games), but either way at £135, you’re still getting a Radeon 9800 Pro card :p. Might need to wait awhile for stock to arrive though…

Its a shame you didn't post earlier because on Monday morning, when I was looking at the weekly deals, they had 100+ in stock. Mind you, they all disappeared pretty quickly as you can imagine.

If you go to the manufacturers website they usually give a list of all the processors the board will support (with the most up to date bios). If you bought the mobo early in it's life cycle the odds are in the favour of you being able to pop in a faster processor:)
