VRAM isn't the most important thing on a graphics card, and hasn't been in quite some time. There are very few games that would saturate a 1gb card. Probably the best you could do, without upgrading other stuff, is a Radeon HD 5670.

The only graphics cards with 4 gigs are workstation ones which are hideously expensive and not optimized for gameplay.

P4 = Pentium 4? I should warn you, I have an Athlon II triplecore at 2.9 Ghz, and sometimes my PC chokes on the game since its not exactly that well optimized... Steam states the minimum Processor you need is a dualcore. Also, the already mentioned Radeon is a good investment, I got a 5770 and its fine, my friends got a 5750 and its still fine. But again, if your Processor isn't fast enough the videocard won't help you much.

Also, the only thing that would help the Graphics to be better would be if they included more options for optimizing, there is no Antialiasing in this game! I was disappointed a bit how less they tailored the port for modern PCs after I bought it, Game is cool though but the older Burnout Paradise (also by Criterion) is the technical better game for PCs.

This is a good point. I believe at the end of the life span there were dual core pentiums, but I doubt they would be powerful enough.
