I found it really valuable to go from 512 MB to 1.25 GB on a Dell laptop running WinXP, and the module only cost me $40 or so.
J brings up a good point. 512MB, that computer must be like 5 or 6 years old. If thats the case I congratulate you because it seems like these things are built to last three years. But I digress, anyway if you only have 512MB I don't even know if CS4 is option, infact I have no idea how you are even running CS2! I have 2.2 GB SRAM and CS2 locks up for me more than I would like.
