Yes you can, it operates on a bellcurve. The higher you go, the less increase in performace you have. And if you arent using an NT based OS, over 512mb can HURT your system.

your hard drive stores stuff you download - RAM is there so
you can have more than one program running.

memory lets you run programs faster up to a point, then it just lets you run more things at once.

Think about it in car terms, If the CPU is the horsepower, then RAM is the torque.
