Re: adding ram; anuone noticing effective benefit???

Using XP, I have gone from 512 MB to 1 GB on a 4600 and noticed no difference for general web browsing, word processing, etc.  But I did not do any graphics or video intensive applications, nor do I have more than 1 or 2 windows open at a time with that computer.  On others I have gone from 1 to 2 or more GB and seen no difference, again with XP.  For Vista, 2 GB is right, but with XP it is overkill for most users.
