Depends what you are using the machine for. Overall, is it likely that moving from 4GB to 8GB will improve your speed? For web browsing/email and that sort of thing its unlikely. Do your applications use a large amount of memory and will they benefit from more? Some games might benefit a little bit. Apps like Photoshop and such will for sure. It also depends on how many of these apps you leave open at once.

EDIT: Forgot to mention that unless your running a 64bit OS you won't see any improvement regardless of what you add.
