Actually some 4550's are capable of handling 2 gb of ram (depending upon bios version/clock speed). This may be a bit high-tech for inexperienced users, but here is the link from which I found this information. i am in the process of replacing the mobo and ram on an old 4550 myself. I will let you know if it works. Good luck to you.
