I don't know 'bout the RAM -- if you're buying it new, I'd go ahead and get 
DDR.  Looks to be $10 more expensive than a stick of PC100, at least on 
newegg.com.  If you've got the PC100 already, might as well give it a try.  I 
don't see it making much of a difference, really..

The gf2mx will work just dandy.  I was using one (without a tv-out) before I 
got the gf4.
