RAM Question 12 GB verses 24 GB

Has anyone went from say 12 GB to 24 GB in Windows 7 x64 bit? Was there any difference? What did you notice? I understanf at this point Windows 7 x64 will only use 16 GB. Would you do it again after doing it?

Any help and comments are appreciated! Thanks.

I seriously doubt you would notice anything unless you are doing heavy memory intensive applications.

Windows 7 Ultimate x64 SP1

I have a single rackmount Dell server with 24 GB of RAM, currently running all 5 of my company's virtual servers, and we aren't even hitting the memory fully. I doubt there's anything on a desktop that would need that much.
