i currently have 2 gig of ram (2x1 gig crucial ddr 400) in an asus a8n motherboard. amd athlon 64 dual core 3800 processor. windows xp 32 sp2.

is it worth putting in another 2 gig of 2x1 gig crucial sticks @ £120.

i don't play games. i edit photos and watch big divx and codec'd movies, also do a lot of other imagey manipulation stuff. sometimes its a bit chuggy, is it worth putting in another 2 gig. someone above posted that win xp pro 32 can only use 3.2 gig, therefore shall i only purchase another gig?

any help appreciated.

No such thing as "too much RAM" (with the exception of using Windows 98 as that could not effectively cache above 1GB).
However there are better things to spend your money on above and beyond 2GB and what with memory prices as high as they are at the moment.
