Over 2.5 GB ram problem

I just upgraded my old Intel P4 system with a 3Ghz multithread (2 processors?) processor and 4 GB ram. I am running Debian Wheezy with a KDE desktop. My present kernel is Linux-3.8-1=686-pae. From reading, I think I need to change the kernel to the bigmem version but all of the packages shown are for much older versions (or they seem to be). If I install the linux-image-686-bigmem dummy package will it automatically pick the latest kernel version or not? If not what do I do?

Note: Reason for doing this; cheap used parts that turn a bucket of bolts into a reasonably useful system.
