Dell Optiplex GX280 SFF Upgrading graphics etc?

  Acer-1 12:52 10 Dec 2008

I recently purchased a Dell Optiplex GX280 SFF from ebay for £35 the spec is:

Pentium 4 2.8ghz CPU
512mb RAM
40gb SATA 7200rpm HDD
8 USB ports (6 rear / 2 front)
onboard sound
onboard LAN
Windows XP Pro

only wanted something cheap to play the odd old game like counter strike source.

I have also brought a monitor keyboard etc and wanna buy some more ram and a graphics card as i have found on the internet it should have a pci express slot.

But i did'nt take into account that its a small form factor desktop so could anyone help me with what memory i need and graphics cards i can use?
