Would upgrading the RAM be worthwhile, or a waste? Is it the speed that's the problem?

If you could put your specs here that way we know what you have so far as in system.

You planning on buying q6600 or you have it? Yes better ram would help out.

It isn't the speed, it's the timings. I run my RAM at tighter timings than you and at a higher speed.

My RAM: DDR2-940 4-5-4-12 2T
Your RAM: DDR2-800 6-6-6-18

I have the Q6600. I bought the computer because it was really cheap and was hoping I could upgrade a few of the components to make it decent. Obviously I'm new at this and am learning things the hard way. I'm under the impression I can't change my timing because my computer's a dell and I can't change anything in the BIOS. Is it possible for me to adjust the timings and reach a 1:1 FSB:RAM?

That's true about the Dell pc. They lock the bios so that you can't do to much. That way they are hoping you upgrade through them and made the $$$.
