What should I upgrade?

My specs:
Amd Athlon II 630 @ 2.8 GHz
Ati Radeon XFX 5770
4(2x2)Gb of DDR3 Ripjaws @ 1600

Should I get another stick of ram, a second 5770 for crossfire, or a new processor?
Or maybe I should get a aftermarket cooling fan and heatsink for intense overclocking of the cpu?

Overclock the CPU. Spend 20$ on the Hyper 212+ , you won't regret it.

Really no need to upgrade unless you are playing at a high resolution. If you are another 5770 and overclock on the CPU will give the best experience.

so you don't think I should get an extra 2gb of ram to bump the total up to 6?
Would it not make a difference?

In gaming, there is little difference after 3GB of RAM. I second getting an aftermarket HSF and overclocking. If you plan to game at higher resolutions, I would add a second ATI 5770.
