Hi ajoydas,

Adobe photoshop System requirements      
 
 
Windows
 
 Intel® Pentium® III or 4 processor
 
 Microsoft® Windows® 2000 with Service Pack 3 or Windows XP
 
 192MB of RAM (256MB recommended)
 
 280MB of available hard-disk space
 
 Color monitor with 16-bit color or greater video card
 
 1,024x768 or greater monitor resolution
 
 CD-ROM drive  
 
 Internet or phone connection required for product activation
 
adobe illustrator Windows
 
 Intel® Pentium® III or 4 processor
 
 Microsoft® Windows® 2000 with Service Pack 3 or Windows XP
 
 192MB of RAM (256MB recommended)
 
 470MB of available hard-disk space
 
 CD-ROM drive
 
 For Adobe® PostScript® printers: Adobe PostScript Level 2 or PostScript 3™  

192 MB RAM is recommended, so I guess 128Mb AGP card should be sufficient for your requirements

The attachment keyword is not supported by all implementation of mailto. You better use the system.web.mail namespace

What emoreau means is that not all email clients support it and as such as you do not know what client why will be using you should not use it.

There is no way to attach files using "mailto" protocol. Most likely because of the security reasons.
