Depends...

If the ram you presently have is crappy PC133 ram, you will notice no difference in render times.

Youre in a bad situation to upgrade. You would be better off getting a better video card. But I would suggest saving up and selling the board and cpu and memory you have and upgrade to a Northwood P4 (1.8 and up) with a Rambus board and PC800 memory.

Even a P4 with a DDR board would help out alot.

If none of this makes sense www.tomshardware.com should be a daily read for you.
