I don't really need it. You should benefit from it with win XP greatly. Your computer will be a million times faster! (well 640 compared to 12

Here'* how I think of it:

Just make sure that your expansion slot doesn't "require" any further expansions to be the same size as what you've got. Some boards and types of RAM require that.

I've heard that you don't want to mix and match anyway, but always go with the same size RAM across two slots, if you can. It works okay if you don't, but works faster and more efficient if you do.
