Hi, I was wondering if I should upgrade my current 1GB ram to 2GB. Currently I am running on Windows Vista, with 1 GB of ram, and when I multi task with programs, everything starts to get laggy and use up most of my ram. So is it advisable for me to get a upgrade on my laptop? I don't want to buy 2 GB of ram and theres no change of peformance at the end.

My specs are:

Acer Aspre 5670
Intel Core Duo T2300 (1.66 GHz, 667 MHz FSB, 2MB L2 cache)
15.4" WXGA CrystalBrite LCD with 16ms refresh rate.
ATI Mobility Radeon X1400 128MB
100GB 5400 RPM SATA hard drive
Slot-Load DVD super multi drive
1GB DDR2 dual channel memory
802.11 a/b/g wireless with singalup high efficiency antenna
Bluetooth 2.0+EDR
ExpressCard slot

And also, I am planning to buy this set of ram: http://www.ncix.com/...facture=CORSAIR

Thanks in advance! :)

In vista, 2GB makes a large difference from 1GB.
Yes the upgrade will work, if you need any help just let me know.
