Teachmeplease

it looks like you have 4GB of Ram your going to get,

I would recommend getting a 64bit OS to support that memory.

That is exactly why I asked...If you run XP unless it is the XP professional x64 I believe it will only recognize about 3.5Gbs or even less of your ram...It will use the remainder of the ram as an "address" memory for the bios' MMIO (Memory-Mapped Input/Output) In other words your computer is assigning some of your "physical" memory as "address" memory to run its input output devices such as the USB ports, Integrated video cards or sound cards, and PCI buses. Upgrading to a 64 bit OS will fix this unless you are still using the on-board video but you already said you have a graphics card so that's not a problem here
