every cent you spend on ddr2 goes in the trash when you upgrade and you probably need to upgrade in teh next 1-2 years. Don't get more than 4 gb because it will be a waste. Are you running a 64bit os?

I always run 64 bit when I can, and I don't upgrade often, I don't have the need to, I don't game etc, I haven't upgraded in 7 or 8 years since I bought this machine because I didn't need to.
