As everyone has said, you won't notice anything unless you start pilling programs into memory or do some memory intensive tasks like Photoshop editing or video encoding. I've 32 gig of memory and outside of intensive multitasking, and photo editing in Photoshop... meh. But, as a photographer, I often create Photoshop files that can than grow as large as a gig so I need all the memory I can get.

Anyway if you really want to see a performance boost... get an SSD drive

Can't say I saw any FPS boost by increasing my RAM, and I'm a huge gamer.

Memory only decreases loading times with games on a Hard drive but not by leaps and bounds

as for getting extra FPS you might of had a Videocard driver update that would be the only way unless you Overclocked the CPU and then yea you will for sure see gains

Actually you have HD graphics so it did help it only because your IGPU is memory dependent

you can get a 60gb SSD for less than 40 or 120gb for 55 on ebuyer! not exactly a fortune for the performance gain youll get in return!!

I should have said you usually don't see FPS increases, but yes, that's system dependent.

Well you won't see any performance difference unless you start running out of physical memory and start relying on virtual memory. By that I mean you start having to page in and out from disk a lot more than usual because you are using more memory than what is available, Windows basically uses disk storage as temporary memory. Your computer will work but it will run so slowly and your programs will start to crash, after a while you will probably experience your system slowing down to the point where it crashes all together.
So unless you intend on opening a lot of processes at once you will notice little to no difference in performance.
