To be honest, where you are at right now, I'd suggest both would need
improving in order to get the best out of Vista Ultimate. I would certainly
make RAM the first thing I took care of in your position though.
If you'd need a new motherboard for a new processor then you might need new
RAM at the same time. If that's the case and given that your system must be
about 2 years old, maybe slightly older, for that spec, you may find that
RAM purchased for your current system wouldn't work with a new motherboard /
dual core processor combo.... In which case you need to think carefully
whether or not it's really worth spending much on the current system.
