I have an HP 6830s laptop with 4gb of memory and Win7 home premium OS. I mostly run a graphics program called Chief Architect which has full rendering capability. Would increasing the memory to 8gb, the max on this machine, be worth doing? The video card is an ATI Radeon HD 3430 which cannot be upgraded. Thanks for accepting this inquiry.

Yes. More memory would speed it up.

as I said on your other post, It will help if you're actually using all of your current memory. If that program won't use more than say 3.5gb of memory then adding more won't help, however if you're using all the memory you have it will have a big improvement.
