    Agreed. That type of HDD is normally used in compact systems such as a console gaming system or a laptop. I have one of those in my desktop The Western Digital Scorpio Blue WD3200BEVT came out of an old laptop and is currently holding some TV shows.

    You should notice a gaming performance boost when you install a second 4GB module. Games these days are easily exceeding 4GB RAM usage. What happens when the PC doesn't have any more RAM available? It has to use the hard drive(pagefile which is aka a swap file or virtual memory) as RAM which is significantly slower than regular RAM.

    You will need to do it yourself in Windows with the Disk management utility
