Not unless you are doing serious video or picture editing or you have a ton of programs open at the same time.

No unless you're planning on using the RAM. At the moment; there isn't any game that goes over 2GB unless you mod the game to support it AFAIK. You can use the extra RAM in a RAMdisk to get a "snappier" system though.

I think it'd be a waste unless you state what you expect to achieve by increases your resources.

If you can use that ram, then yeah, there's an obvious point. Personally, I'd want as much ram as possible in any machine if I ever planned to use Photoshop.

If you run Virtual Machines on a regular basis, like I do, I consider it a necessity.
