[P5VD2-X + E6300 + DDR2 533] Vs. [P5NSLI + E4400 + DDR2 667]

Hi everyone.
NEED HELP !!!!

I have a opportunity to upgrade my processor. With the money I can buy a C2D E6300 or buy a C2D E4400 and change my cheap MB P5VD2-X to a ASUS P5NSLI or ASUS P5LD2-SE

My actual config is:
MB ASUS P5VD2-X
PENTIUM D 925 3.0Ghz
2Gb DDR2 533Mhz

Possible options to upgrade:

A) Upgrade only the processor and stick with my actual mobo and RAM (price ~150U$).
. MB ASUS P5VD2-X
. C2D E6300
. 2Gb DDR2 533Mhz

or

B) Change the processor to a cheaper C2D E4400 and upgrade my mobo and RAM to a MB ASUS (P5N-SLI or P5LD2-SE) and DDR2 667Mhz (price ~200U$)
. MB ASUS (P5N-SLI or P5LD2-SE)
. C2D E4400
. 2Gb DDR2 667Mhz Dual Channell

Some information:
Model / Clock / FSB / Cache
E6300 / 1,86 GHz / 1.066 MHz / 2 MB
E4400 / 2.00 GHz / 800 MHz / 2 MB

Which is the best option for gaming perfomance (in Stock, non OC)?

  1. I'd get the cheap mobo the E4400 and DDR 800.

    Well kinda depends actually. Do you want to OC. DDR800 is not much more than 533 / 667 hence why i recommend it.

    But I can't spending more money in mobos with DDR2 support.

    I dont want to OC. I'll run all in stock !

    I live in Brazil. Here mobos with c2d and ddr2-800 are very expensives...
