XP itself is limited to 2GB I believe. If your motherboard will take 2GB, just buy one 1GB chip and go up to 1.5GB. You'll notice the difference.

Mainly take care to not static electricity the crap out of the crap or your computer.
XP is good for 4g IIRC if the motherboard supports it. , However is only recognizes 3.5 g . My XP laptop only recognizes 2g , but it only came with 1/2 g.

Laptop and desktop memory are different configs.
