Ram is so cheap, there's really no reason not to get 4 gigs. Since you already have 2 sticks, just get 2 more instead of spending the extra on a 2x2 kit. There's no issue running all 4 dimms, and it will be an improvement over 2 GB.

Serenity, it really depends on the hardware. On some machines it'll work and some it won't. Here's something that might explain it more: http://forums.dpreview.com/forums/re...ssage=25007815.

Good luck
