It depends on what you do with your computer...If you're doing renderings, I'm sure it would surely speed things up a fair amount.  However, I can't see someone justifying the price.

Yeah I just upgraded from 2 to 4GBs and the only thing that really makes use of it that I use on a regular basis is VMs. A few games take up 2.5GBs, but nothing extreme.
