    It will enhance gaming performance and stuff like that. But it shouldn't make your PC run faster in just regular use. If you feel like 2 gigs is enough, make sure you lower the page file size(you can even turn it off if you have enough RAM, I find 2 gigs is about the size I use for gaming). That will greatly increase performance.

    But as I said, more RAM won't give you any speed increase, it just lessens the capacity of the RAM as a bottleneck in memory intensive programs.

    Performance is about what you do with your computer.. You can play solitaire with 32MB of RAM too and it's still blindingly fast :)

    If you can't tell whether 2 gigs of RAM is enough or not for you, then most likely you are not doing anything with your computr that would require more.
