For gaming, probably not enough that you would even notice. You also have to remember that most games are still only 32 bit and as such, unless they are large address aware or 64 bit they are limited to 2 GB total address space,

No, not for gaming.

Are you overclocked? Adding more RAM might require some voltage adjustments for a stable overclock.

What you've said is surprising to me. I am not a gamer, but I have never seen a gaming rig with less than 4GB RAM. The gamers that I know have large amounts of installed RAM, usually from 4-12GB. I had the impression that the ruling axiom is more the better.
