Windows 7 64 can use the full 4GB of RAM (assuming that's the amount you have).

Is this correct ?

If you wish to upgrade the amount of available RAM from 4GB what is the next logical step, is it 8GB or could you replace a 2GB with a 4GB ?

You should have either 2 or 4 slots filled not 1 or 3 for dual channel operation.

If you have 2 x 2GB at present and want to increase the memory then adding 2 more sticks is the way to go and whether you add 2 x 1GB or 2 x 2GB is up to you but given the low price of memory I would add 2 x 2GB

Of course if the motherboard only has 2 slots then it gets expensive and then you need to ask whether you have any programmes which can use the extra memory (are they 64 bit) or whether you have several memory hungry programs running simultaneously

Memory upgrades can depend on the motherboard and a read of it's manual can provide the answer.

On 64-bit Windows, there are several orders of magnitude more addresses, so at the current time the only limit is an artificial one at 192GB, and I can't imagine that there are many desktops/workstations in the world in 2012 which need that amount!
