To be honest I'm not sure extra RAM will make it much faster, not unless 
you're running shed loads at once.  I have a 2Ghz Core 2 Duo and 4GB Ram 
and I don't notice any major real speed difference in day to day stuff 
than I do from my 1.4Ghz Core 2 Duo work laptop with 2GB Ram.

Plus you can use 4GB RAM with 32-Bit without any problems (and yes you 
see the full 4GB unlike with 32-Bit Vista and Windows 7 where it only 
uses 3.25GB).
