Computer help pleeease - what RAM do i need?

I've got a HP Pavillion dv9000 (or Dv9823Ea i think...). I've currently got 3gb RAM and want to boost it up to 4gb, just because i can.

Do you know if because i have 3gb RAM, i'll need to take out 1gb and replace with a new 2gb? or is it better to buy the whole 4gb??

i've replaced/added RAM a couple of times in the past so i know how to do it - it's just a matter of knowing what to buy. i used Crucial.com for the system scanner, but it wasn't very useful (couldn't complete scann...)

any help appreciated and i can, or at least will try, to answer any other questions if needed.

cheers

you've only got 2 slots so it'll need to be 2x2gb sticks.

up to you whether the performance boost gained by buying matched pairs is worth it or not.

Windows will only recognise 4GB RAM if you have Vista 64-bit.

Yep agree with Porter above ...adding the extra 1gb to make it 4gb will make sod all difference !
