What Upgrades Do I Need? (Noobie)

So recently I've been noticing my computer slowing down greatly when it has to run multiple programs. I'm not sure if I need more RAM or a better Processor, or both (Specs below). To give you an idea of what I use my computer for, it is generally video editing (Vegas, Camtasia), internet surfing, and light gaming (Minecraft, DeSmuME). I seem to be able to barely run ONE of the above things, so I can't seem to multitask. If I'm rendering a video, I can't be on Firefox or playing a game, I basically have to go do something else. If I'm playing Minecraft, I need to close every other program and it STILL lags and my CPU is maxed out... Here are my specs:
OS: Vista Home Premium x64 bit
Processor: Intel Core 2 Duo CPU T8100 @ 2.1 GHz, 2 cores.
RAM: 4 GB
(C:) Drive Space: 116 GB free out of 176 GB
If you can help I would greatly appreciate it, and if you need more specs let me know. Thanks!
