Scan your system with Crucial, they will tell you what you can do and what you need.

The amount and type of memory your computer can use is dependent upon two things, the motherboard (or the PC make and model) and the operating system. With that information we will be able to point you in the right direction.

@Budohorseman. Why the OS?. Memory limit is set in the m/b & bios, surely?

32-bit vs 64-bit. While technically does not limit the amount you can install, it does limit the amount that can be addressed. Though I suppose we can assume based on the question that they have a 32-bit OS.

You are talking about usage after installation. Different thing. He/She, is asking for max memory for the system.
