If its 3 sticks for 3gb then just add another stick for 4gb.
It's 2 sticks so what I'll probably do is buy another 2gb stick to match the one for his birthday or something.
Sadly we couldn't fit getting a mobo with 4 RAM slots into the budget but I'm sure 3gb and than 4gb will do him fine.
But I thought along the same lines since he wants to use Vegas, ram amount is really what's important.
