Processor or RAM?

  1. I have 512 megabytes of RAM and my processor is a 1.7 GHz Intel Celeron. I do a lot of multitasking on the computer, I don't usually run it above 80% used RAM but that makes it very sluggish. I am wondering which I should upgrade first, processor or RAM. I don't have enough money for both and I'd be upgrading mostly el cheapo as it is. Which upgrade would give me more speed for the spend in this case?

    def processor first mate; you need to move up from the 1.7 with the celeron core. once you have that done you can look to upgrade the ram.

    what is your budget?
