    It'll make VM's easier for one thing.

    Testing different products, such as 32bit only products. Testing malware. Testing different operating systems.

    VM's should work much better now that I can allocate 4GB of RAM to a single machine. And the system overall should get a nice little boost.

    Did you purchase from Crucial?
    I've always had very satisfactory dealings with them over the years.
