4GB DDR2-800 is fine in this day and age. If you're desperate for a performance increase, you could whip the RAM up to 1066 and loosen the timings a bit.

You can do it through the BIOS.

Seeing as it's quite a lengthy process, learning about all the lingo and whatnot, here's a guide;

Hope this helps.
