Looking at this:

http://forum.crucial.com/t5/Standard-DRAM-Memory-Knowledge/Why-doesn-t-Windows-recognize-all-of-my-memory/ta-p/39570

Win7-64 bit states up to 4gb of ram will be recognised. Looking at the specs for BF4, 8gb is seen as ideal, so I was considering upping from 4gb to 8gb.

However, according to that list, if i installed it, the OS wouldnt recognise it anyway, so does that means it's a pointless exercise and won't achieve anything?

The second part of the list states something about PAE, and that windows will recognise up to 16, but I have no idea what any of this bit means.

To your question, I think upgrading to 8GB of RAM would be a good idea.
