I am looking to improve performance and I am not that saavy when it comes to upgrades. i have the following specs below and I want to upgrade to a higher frame rate. What is my best option? I believe it is to upgrade the video card, but I was thinking that going to a 64 bit OS to use all 6 gigs of RAM might be better.

Intel(R) Core(TM)2 Quad CPU Q6600 @ 2.40GHz

Bios Name
Default System BIOS
Intel Corp. MQ96510J.15A.0386.2007.1206.0148

3.5 GB (really 6, can;t use because of 32 bit OS)

Microsoft Windows Vista Home Premium Edition Service Pack 2 (build 6002), 32-bit

Video Card
GeForce 9600 GSO

Thanks in advance!
