If that were the case, I'd skip the extra 2GB of RAM and just upgrade my HD to an SSD.
If that is the case, you would be buying a 4GB stick anyway...why would you take 1 2GB stick out and put in a 4 GB? Why not just add the 4 GB stick and have a total of 8 GB?

Maybe you have plans for the other 2GB, or maybe I missed something I don't know.
