Default Upgrade opinions please

Hi, im faced with a dilemma

I have a P4 3.0ghz w/ HT, 1gb of pc3200 SD DDRAM system

I can either have a ram upgrade (1.5gig) and 6800GS, or

just a 7800gt. What would i benefit more from (in games)??

Yeah, I would get the 7800GT also. You'll see more of a performance boost than if you went with more RAM and a 6800GS.
