Default Question regarding ram

I noticed my motherboard supports up to 4 gb of ram. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16813131574

I have 2 right now, would it be worth the extra money to get another GB or 2. Totalling 4 GB. Would I notice some more power/performance. Thanks

It wont be read in stadard 32 bit XP but you will get a performance increase once its supported in Vista.

So bascially I wouldnt notice anything? unless Im running Vista? I really am wondering if it will make anything run faster, such as games?

Nothing will run faster w/ 4gig of ram becasue Windows XP 32xbit only supports up to 3gig. Xp X64bit, Vista, and some others support over that but you will have to wait on Vista and i dont recomend using 64bit Windows.
