Default Upgrade advice needed

Two questions folks,
I have a slightly aged Dell Dimension 4600i. I am trying to extend it's life a bit with some hardware/memory upgrades. Would it be worth replacing the existing processor - Intel(R) Pentium(R) 4 CPU 2.80GHz (Prescott) with a faster Pent 4? The RAM can only be maxed out at 4GB. Is there a performance difference between PC - 3200 and PC - 2700 ram?
The computer is used for average stuff and I am lately into MS Flight Sim. I realize that FS is very taxing on a comp and a more powerful system would make it fly better. Until that time though I am trying to keep this one chugging along.
Thanks for your help!
Joe
