Question Need More Ram??

Hey guys and girls,
I am currently using 2GB of DDR400 RAM with an ATI X1900XT video card and an AMD X2 4200 CPU. I have a decent 470 Watt PSU and an A8R-MVP motherboard. My question here is: Would it make a noticeable difference in my gaming experiences if I was to invest in another Gig of RAM?
Thanks!

How would having more than 2 gigs of ram make your computer slower?

The pc doesn't know what to do with it. It's like sending a woman into store with too much money for one specific thing. chances are she'll come out later and not with what you wanted!!!

2GB = OPTIMAL because it's all the room the pc needs. give it anymore and it will wander...
