Default I Need A Suggestion About Ram Or A Video Card!

Alright I have a 1.8 GHz Intel Celeron processor, with 384 MB of RAM. I wish to play some of the newer games that come out. I need to know what would be better, upgrading to a 1 Gig of RAM or getting a new Video Card, (nVidia 6600). I need to know which would be a better investment. Please Reply Back!
