Depends on the system.

If you are running Windows 95, the chances are the performance will be better as there will be less use of virtual memory, and windows 98 is slightly better still. You will see a much bigger improvement in NT.

Windows 3.1 and DOS will not beenfit unless you are doing heavy CAD work. The reason is, that Windows 3.X will in all likelihood run out of resources before it runs out of memory.

Keep in mind too, that windows 95 is 'optimized' for 32MB of memory. And then after will drop in memory access speeds until you reach approx. (theoretically) 2gig. Also depends on what apps you are running...

Well, then upgrade the ram.. since the programs your using will be memory demanding.. most graphical programs I know are.. you might as well memory is pretty cheap.. and you'll notice the differnece straight away.. and games love lots of memory..

If you add memory from 16MB to 32MB, you will have the performance around 25% increase, but if you add memory from 32MB to 64MB, the performance improves around 6% in general.

Speaking as a graphics worker, I find that most GFX programs are much faster.

Well graphic programs are the most greedy and memory intensive programs as far as I'm concerned. And think it's well worth upgrading the Ram for this purpose.. oh yeah... especially for games...
