My system:

Xp home
600 mhz P3
384 RAM
120GB HDD

My V card port is agp and It has a 16mb 2x in it. now, what is the "2X" about and how high can I go? I've see v cards that are 8X. I need to upgrade but my motherboard is OEM and has no info on it. so I dont know what it can support. So,

If It came with a 2x, does it mean I can go as high as 4X? also, how much memory would be the max?

Well, as far as how high can you go; that strictly depends on the motherboard, and there's no accurate way for us to predict how high you can go without this information. You can try taking a look at the physical board and see if it has any branding (very seldom would a manufacturer not brand their board) or model number and we can use that to find your specs.

At any rate, the amount of memory your video card can handle is only affected by the amount that the video card can process. Basically, there are no limits on video memory. There are, however, limits on the capabilities of video card imposed by its architecture. In other words, as long as the AGP interface (2X, 4X, 8X) is compatible, the amount of memory will also be compatible.
