Note that the common versions of Wondows XP and Vista cannot make
effective use of the 4th GB of RAM. There are only two circumstances
where the extra memory will make any practical difference:
-if you are running a 64-bit version of Windows (XP 64 or Viata Ultimate)
-if you have a video adapter that uses system memory
Unless one of those applies to you, the 4th GB of RAM is pointless.
