Default what to upgrade first? a 939 cpu, or new ram

well i have this ram

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16820146969

it is a single 1024 stick i was thinking of keeping this mobo till games got the need for 4 gigs so i had the i dea of buying single gigs when they got needed, i got this ram right beofre all the new ocz styles and heatsinks came out i really thought this was good stuff, but with XMS2 and so im think of just buying some entirely different dual channel 184 pin 2x 1024

or should i get a 4400+ to replace my venice at 2.0

what would imporve the preformace more?

I would buy an X2 3800+ and another gig of the stuff you have :classic: But if it was between those two choices, I would pick the upgrading CPU.

Yeah go with the 4400 x2....then put another 1gb of ram on your list of things to buy next.

4400x2 is an awesome CPU. I went from a 3200+ venice to a 3700+ san diego to a 4400 x2 toledo and the toledo is pretty **** good...especially since it only costs about 230 shipped now.
