With the upgrade to 4Gb you will be flying with the opening and working in your Apps...
I have done just this on my Whitebook from 1 GB straight up to 4 Gb and its like a concord.
Opening CS4 with 1 GB it took like 1 minute (PS CS4 recommend at least 2GB) but now its open in like 13sec's ... and rendering and opening my 100 odd brushes is quick as...
Would be worth the $50 odd dollars for the upgrade

EDIT : isnt your particular machine upgradable to 6 GB .....
