Depends on the motherboard. Early ones are limited to 8GB. This was later extended to 32GB. There are patches around for some boards to go beyond this.
The new controller should work if it has it's own BIOS. And if it's compatible with whatever PCI version the board supports.
I'd just use file sharing with a NAS if it's already around or use a second disk to host the archive. Should not be very large as the big games will probably run on the XP machine.
