Please can someone tell me wether it is better to increase ram for speed boost or processor.
I operate ecs k7s5apro with athlon xp2000+512mb ram

Depends on what you do with the machine; an extra 512mb ram will make a difference I think for most applications. But it will not be dramatic.

It also depends on what operating system you are using. If 98 or ME, then don't bother with the ram.

The RAM would be the cheapest, but as members have already pointed out, you won really feel a difference in speed, if any (apart from playing games, but thats about it...)
