If your gaming, your video card will do more for you than any other item.
The ram will also help.

What are you temps right now? How much you overclock? RAM will always help your computer, but if you have decent temps, like belove 55C on CPU, then you're fine. If you wanna get more fps in games, drop the other stuff and grab a new video card.

edit// with mild gaming you should be fine with the 9600 se, unless you're not satisfied with how your games look right now.

If your PC usage habbits are not that demanding get another 512 with simular timings!
If the temps are fine dont bother with the XP-120
With the money you save a better vid card coupled with the extra 512 will get you the most for the least money!
