Hello guys, I want to Upgrade my PC. I have enough money for Upgrading Either RAM or CPU First. Which one should I Upgrade first to Increase Performance?

I Either have the Choice of Upgrading from Pentium G2020 to Intel Core I3-3250, or Upgrade my 4GB DDR3 1333 mhz RAM to 6GB DDR3 1333mhz
Any help would be Appreciated!

Well, if you upgraded to the i3 you would be looking at about a 50% performance increase over the Pentium. Your RAM isn't going to give you that kind of increase, but it will make running smoother. It all depends on what you are doing. For day to day things like web browsing you'll likely see more of an improvement from RAM. If you are doing things like gaming, or even office or school work, then the CPU should be your first upgrade.

Well, it'd be a great help if we knew the specifications of your computer. Otherwise we don't really know what we are working with here.
Alright, Should I upgrade from Pentium G2020 to Intel I3-3250, or upgrade my ram 4GB DDR3 1333 mhz RAM to 6GB DDR3 1333mhz first to Increase Computer Speed and Performance?
