    What Apps do you run? I am using 4GB of RAM right now and my most power hungry apps right now are either Team Fortress 2 and Left 4 Dead. With these open I still have around 800MB to 1GB of RAM left.

    Does Activity Monitor report a large number of Page Outs over a relatively short period of time? Do you see a significant amount of Swap used? If so, then yes, you should see a speed increase. Otherwise: No, not really.
