Installing RAM for Ivy bridge processor

If your computer is running a 32-bit Os with 4GB of RAM, you can only access the 3.2GB for a reason that the memory has some limitations. But when your computer is running a 64-bit OS, then you have the entire access to the full 4GB memory.

The distinctness between the performance of a 2GB RAM system and 4GB RAM system is the same with having a night and day. And also with a system that runs a 32-bit system that restricts the RAM to use a little over 3GB size, the improvement in performance is worth your money. It doesn't just make your applications run faster but it can also allow you to run applications all at the same time. This is very useful when running MS Office or Adobe Master Collection.

So I would advice you to use a 4GB of RAM.

Intel's new Ivy Bridge CPU's is the codename for the old 32-nanometer Sandy Bridge. It has new 3D tri-gate transistors that are 32% better than the transistor used in Sandy Bridge. For the RAM, 4GB is needed. I will suggest that you use two 2GB Crucial Ballistic Sport DDR3 1333 (PC3 10600). It's cheaper to buy two separate memory stick than one 4GB memory stick.
