Yes, you can run many programs with it. Games will also run faster like BF2

You may want to use that additional RAM you have as well. Make it 3GB.

I went from 1 GB to 3 GB, and it definately is a lot faster. Doesn't matter if you're just surfing the web or you're playing BF2 on full settings, there's a very noticeable difference.

Corsair is nice RAM too, except for the price tag.

my friend just told me that Windows XP doesnt support higher than 2gigs of ram. Or doesnt work properly if its more than 2gigs. Is this true?

That's completely untrue, because right now I have 3 GB of RAM installed. I'm almost positive that XP's limit is 4 GB.
