So, Corsair claim that moving from 2GiB to 4GiB results in a speedup of typically between 10% and 460%. However, when someone else attempted something similar, they found the speedup to be in the order of 1.6% on average.

Slightly different results for spending money...

LOL my pal Zoli has bought some Muskin 2x2GB replacing his 2x1GB whetever brand it was. He has yet to find out in which game it helps. Maybe a bit in Crysis.

I'm told that having 4 Gb is a real improvement in Vista. Gosh, that's important to me!
