No software needed. Some systems will say "RAM has changed, hit f1 to continue" or some such. After that I suggest looking at your system manager to verify the correct amount of RAM is displaying.
Keep in mind that Windows allocates some of the RAM towards the paging file.
How much RAM are you looking to buy? That stick there is 1GB of RAM. Most gamers go from 2GB to 4GB depending on how much they'd like to spend.
