Will it matter on an dell m90 running xp since xp only recognizes 3gb anyway? I play cs source and some fps games, and do a lot of multitasking.

Playing CSS, you probably will not need more than 2 GB on XP. However, as Dave said, memory is cheap enough so that you could upgrade anyway. Maybe you should just do all your most intensive apps one day and then use task manager (performance tab) to check your peak commit charge. The peak commit charge is the maximum memory at any given time ever requested to the OS (however it resets on reboots).
Considering the price of memory I vote 4 GB, you get Dual channel which is a little faster, and you will have around 3.25 GB available.
