If your system runs out of physical memory, you start to cache applications off the hard drive and your system will slow down considerably. This is quite noticable with multiple large applications (i.e. MS Word, MS Excel, etc) running at the same time. With the addition of memory, this should raise your threshold before disk thrashing starts.
