It depends on which type of RAM you speak of.
I personally think that 2GB DDR2 is a minimum for Vista & 7 if you want a 'nice, smooth' experience.
So yes, i do think it's worth buying an extra 2GB (RAM is cheap as chips too). Please note that if you have a 32bit OS it won't address more than 3.2GB and the extra 1GB is useless. Also, make sure that your board has enough slots for the extra RAM

Depends on what you want to do I rarely need over 2Gb and thats when I am really pushing this system to it's limit.

I think the only reason I went to 4Gb was to fill the slots on my board since ram was so cheap.
