Default Upgrading my Ram

Hey Guys,

i was wondering if anyone knew what the ram max was for a hp pavilion a705w.
I have a 512 mb graphics card by nvidia but it just doesn't give me quite the boost i need for gaming. I did a crucial scan and it said the max was 2gb of ram but i wasn't sure. Anyone know?

Thanks in advance
