Will this speed up my conmputer?

Alright, well I got a Gaetway gm5684e. Its specs can be viewd here: http://support.gateway.com/s/PC/R/2906059R/2906059Rsp3.shtml

Its almost the same as above, but I have an ATI Radeon HD 4350 1GB.
So basicly, I want to add more RAM (Not video ram, normal ram), it has 1GB right now, but I want to add another 1GB at least, but will 2gb speed it up enough? I use it for alot of games and map designing. Right now its pretty slow so I dont use the aero theme. It says
"•Installed: 1024 MB DDR2, 667 MHz, (PC2-5300) dual channel memory (two 512 MB modules)
•Expandable to: 2 GB (two DDR2 DIMM slots)"

But does that mean I can only put in 2GB max?
The specs for the game I play the most are:


OS: Windows® Vista/XP/2000
Processor: 1.7 GHz Processor
Memory: 512MB RAM
Graphics: DirectX® 8.1 level Graphics Card (Requires support for SSE)
Hard Drive: 150 MB
Other Requirements: Internet Connection


Processor: Pentium 4 processor (3.0GHz, or better)
Memory: 1GB RAM
Graphics: DirectX® 9 level Graphics Card

Another question I have is, what does:
"Intel® Pentium® E2180 dual core processor
•Each core operates at 2.0 GHz
•1 MB shared L2 cache
•800 MHz front side bus "
Mean? Does it mean my prosseser is 4ghz? Because if it is, Its still very slow. Anyways, thats all.
