Default memory

I have a gateway 700gr system with 1GB 512x2 memory. I use this for downloading my pictures from my digital camera Internet and E-Mail. If I added another GB of ram 512x2 would that speed things up or would it be a waste of money. Thanks

if all you do is what you mentioned above, it'd be a waste of money, IMO. granted, more RAM almost always speeds things up. but in your case I don't think you'd see enough improvement to justify the cost. if you plan on running any games or doing lots of photo editing in the future, i'd get the extra RAM.

Intel E8400 @ 3.78ghz
8gb (4x2gb) G.SKILL DDR2 1600 @ 420mhz, 5-5-5-12
ASrock P43Twins1600 (hates RAM dividers)
WD Caviar 500gb + 250gb hdd, 32mb cache
eVGA 7900gs @ 585/1700mhz
OCZ GameXStream 600w PSU
Sound Blaster X-Fi Platinum
Cooler Master Centurion 5 case
