Personally I agree and have done exactly that (with cheaper ram though). But for many people (myself included even), the last 8-16GB is used more rarely. The first GB is massively cost effective, with each additional GB slightly less so. It would be an even cheaper upgrade to make in a couple of years.
I think at this point though, the OP might as well just do so.
