just maybe another 2gb more of ram so you have 4gb in total, not really much more you can do, otherwise its going to cost a lot more money

I wouldn't recommend upping the RAM without upgrading the OS to a 64 bit copy of Windows. Sure, there's no harm in running 4GB now, but keep in mind that the 1GB graphics card will eat some of the 3.2 GB allocation that 32 bit Windows Vista allows for total RAM, so you may actually get to use even less of the new 4GB.
