Is 4GB RAM enough to optimize a Pentium D 945?

These are my PC's specs,

• Pentium D 945 (3.4GHz) CPU
• Gigabyte G41M - Combo motherboard (2x DDR3 capable DIMM's)
• _________RAM
• 1GB XFX GeForce 9500GT (DDR3) VGA
• 550W PowerLogic Magnum Pro PSU

Imagine that currently I have no RAM. So, I have 2 options,

01) 2x 2GB G.Skill DDR3-1333MHz (F3-10600CL9S-2GBNT)
02) 2x 4GB G.Skill DDR3-1333MHz (F3-10600CL9S-4GBNT)

Since I'm with an old Pentium D, I know that I cant play the latest games like NFS RUN, BF3 etc.

So, to play some new (but not latest) games with maximum FPS possible with this CPU,
is it enough to use 4GB (option 01) RAM? or... is it worth enough/useful to get extra +4GB (option 02)?

NOTE - I often use this PC for Gaming, but not those high end software like Illustrator etc.

You just insulted my sentimental processor which I got a as a gift! ;) 
Ha ha! Just kidding!

And thanks! I'll be sticking with the 4GB (2x 2GB) then! Thanks for the quick reply boss!

& for the record dude - I'll be building a fair RIG next month! ;) 

Thanks anyways!
