    Well, u should do it! U will see only 3GB, because u have only x32bit windows. W7 loves the RAM and is very efficient in using it. It will not make things faster, but smoother. It helps with everything u do on your PC.

    If u could get a SSD drive, even small like 32GB, do it. It is the best upgrade u can do without upgrading the CPU. U would stop seeing the busy circle.

    And for the games to improve, the GPU upgrade will get u the FPS.
