Will this help me at all....

I know this rig is crappy and out-dated. From the specs listed below would I see a substantial performance increase by doubling the ram and upgrading the gpu to say a 8800 gs. Its not much and dont wanna put much money in it.

I could also upgrade the processor. The MB supports up to a c2d e4300. If I did up grade the cpu I would like to use an e2220 for the higher multiplier but not sure if the MB supports it or not. I know it supports e2140-e2180 but the e2220 shoud be the same processor just a higher multiplier. Im not sure that the cpu upgrade is worth it for web browsing, light gaming, and dvd converting.
