XP will only recognize 3.25GB, so if you put in four, that is what your PC will be able to see and use. It made a noticeable difference in my M1710 XPS - well worth the $$ to me

since you're running dual channel, you're going to want to double the slots, so you'll have to go 4gb, and just take the hit since you're running a 32bit OS.

XP will recognize more than 3.25 if you have the 64bit version.

DDR 2 is so cheap right now, you might as well snag some 2x2gb sticks
