How much performance improve will I see if upgrade from 3gb to 4gb RAM?

Hello,
My Pc specs are:
CPU: Intel core 2 Duo E6420 2.13Ghz
GPU: Gigabyte Geforce GT 630 2GB
RAM: 3GB DDR2
Motherboard: ASUS P5LD2-TVM-SE
Yes its a really poor config. I want to add some more ram as its not that expensive. There are two ram slots in my motherboard. I have a 2gb and one 1gb stick. According to the mobo specification it says max supported memory is 4gb. So if I upgrade the 1gb one with a 4gb one will it not support it? (total 6gb). If not then I'll upgrade the 1gb slot with a 2gb one. But will any of the upgrade have any affect as my cpu is still too weak? Can I get rid of the stuttering I face in game?? Or does it happen because of my poor cpu?

    Practically nothing, I wouldnt bother.

    You could get a bit more performance with a better video card, but ultimately you need a new system as both your cpu and gpu are slow.
  2. Ignore the previous answer. The truth is, you would see an improvement. 3GB is hardly enough to run modern systems. Can't say that it will make up for a lack of a good GPU, but you will see improvements at least in the area of using the desktop.
