Well, it depends on the application that you'll be running. If you're running a game like BF2 with high textures you might be better off with 2 GBs of Ram. In general though, you'll be better off overclocking your CPU as much as possible.
Just a note though, a bottleneck is just the component that will give you the biggest performance increase when upgraded. All systems have a bottleneck as there is always something that could give you more performance, if increased, so don't worry about having one.
