Personaly I would open your machine and take a look at the current ram in it, sometimes they leave the stickered speed value on the stick. I should be DDR2, but there are diffrent speeds of DDR2 depending on the processer and motherboard(to be exact it depends on the frequency the motherboard is set to but that is determined by the processer).
If they were using a 9x version of windows, by default the operating system will only use 512m of ram. There are work arrounds though. If the operating system doesn't address it, the extra ram will do no good and in some cases willl cause issues.

Well Im pretty sure it will help me a little because every once and a while I get the "memory cannot be read" poblem in hl2 and im pretty sure its bc lack of ram.

It's not necessary, but everything loads so much faster!!! Mult-tasking is great.

Remeber after installing new ram, run a mem test like Memtest86, memtest86+ or the windows memorty test tool(http ://oca.mic rosoft.com/en/windiag.asp) to make shur everything is working well. (not required but it can save a ton of time later)
