Default What would you do to speed this up?

What should I upgrade/add-on to make it FASTER, not graphics...maybe $300-400 range total:

Asus M2N-Sli Deluxe
AMD Athlon X2 3800 2x512 2.0GHz
2GB Corsair ddr2 800 5-5-5-15
normal 80gb and 250gb hdd's
500w rosewill psu

then i have a cd drive, mem card reader, and 7300gs which i'm fine with. and i also like my case and monitors.

so basically what's gonna make this faster?

yeah i was thinking about the ram too..so u dont think it'd be a waste..like i wasnt really using it, or would it really speed up the comp?...also i could upgrade to the 5200, do u think the x2 5200 or 2 more gigs would speed it up more?

how come when i was trying to use 4 gigs everyone was telling me it was a waste, now im thinking about going after my 4 gigs again, but the thing i think might speed it up is to see if your MB will support a higher clock speed and get higher clock speed ram
