If you're staying with 32bit then you won't gain but less than a half a gig worth of usable ram. That will speed things up a touch but if you move to 64 bit then 8 gig's is a massive improvement. You can do this in two steps add 1 stick of matching 2 gb ram and then when you move to 64 then order 2 more sticks. When you move to 64 bit as well you can exploit ReadyBoost and add a inexpensive usb flash drive of like 8-16gb's. That as well will speed things up nicely. Heck your could add ReadyBoost to your current system by inserting a drive like this.
