More ram smooths out framerate peaks and allows faster loading.

More RAM lets you have more things loaded into your computers memory without it swapping other things to your hard disk (virtual memory). This gives you faster boot time for Windows, faster load times for programs (and game levels)and less annoying pauses in the middle of processing or when swapping from one task to another.

For the last released games 2gb is a must but you don't need more just for this year I think
