[mythtv-users] More bang for the buck? Processor or faster ram?

I currently have a athlonXP 2200+ with 512 meg of 133MHz ram. I am 
having skipping problems on some HD channels, others play fine. My cpu 
usage runs 80-100% on the problem channels. My question is this: Which 
is going to give me the most improvement? Going to 266MHz ram and maybe 
more ram or going to a faster processor? Say a 2800+ or 3300+? I can 
reconfigure the board for either option. Yes, I understand that 
upgrading both will be the best but the budget says no to that option...

Yours thoughts?
