My System Specs

Default

With the 4Gb kit you will see approx 3Gb on many systems. The 4GB will not get you much faster, and definitely not twice as fast, unless you fill up all your 2GB of ram. My 4GB kit of ram on my XP setup at home gets about 3GB on XP 32-bit.

So you may not need it, but many systems come with 4GB now so it will be a little more future proof for a very little investment in case you change to a 64-bit OS later. In any case you should see more than 2GB if you install the 4GB kit.
