I guess you now have 1 slot filled with 1 1024MB strip and got 3 slots left.

Maximum Memory Capacity: 4194304 MB

4096 GIGABYTE? On four banks? Thats 1024 Gigabyte per bank!

I doubt there are 4096 GB slots available yet, so by best guess is you actually meant 4096MB slots. (=4GB slots).

So, in this matter you can install 4 x 4GB = 16 GB maximum.

Since you already have 1 1GB slot filled, my advice is to fill all the others with 1 GB as well, resulting in 4 x 1 = 4 GB. Pleny for a normal OS.

If you want more however, i advice to go for adding 2 x 2GB, in total resulting in 5GB (2 x 1 + 1 x 1). This way you have still one slot free for extra memory.

Consult your manual on which memory capacities, slot behaviour and memory types are supported. Before you buy anything, open up the computer and check if there are actually really FOUR slots. Sometimes motherboards tend to see 1 slot as 2.

One thing remember that they all have to be the same memory chips, not mixed brands or types

You may also want to remember that if your OS is WIN XP 32bit that the OS will only see and use 3 GB max. of memory.

Try using one of the memory advisor tools at www.crucial.com - that should tell you which memory types can be used and in what combination. You don’t have to buy the memory from Crucial unless you want to.
