The Vista RAM puzzle: Is 2GB enough?

My problem is this: I want the RAM, but do I really need it? I seldom, if ever, use all the memory now in my PC — the RAM gauge I use as part of Yahoo Widgets seldom goes above 65 or 75 percent. I have no performance complaints. (I also use a 2-GB USB flash drive for Vista’s ReadyBoost, which helps.) Would spending $80 to kick my RAM up a single gigabyte to 3 GB be worth it? Would I be better off spending $160 and going to 4 GB?

The article's recommendation of sticking at 2 GB for most users is very sound. I've got 3 GB of memory installed in my computer and don't often use much of it. Games and some of the photography software I use like lots of memory (Adobe Lightroom loves to eat memory) but otherwise I'm fine.

Of course, the nerd in me wants to pony up for another 2 to 4 GB of memory.
