It can take 4 gigs of RAM, which will be visible to the BIOS, but a 32 bit operating system (XP or Vista) can only use about 3.25 gigs. In order to use the full 4 gigs you must install a 64 bit OS. Frankly, the performance difference between 3 and 4 gigs with XP is negligible. It is more noticeable in Vista but not worth the hassle of reinstalling the OS.
