Default Is there any reason to have 8 GB of RAM?

Please excuse my ignorance, but is there any reason to get 8 GBs of RAM as opposed to 4? I had the rig listed below built recently, but as RAM is so cheap these days, Iím wondering if I should drop another $100 to boost it to 8 GB. Are there any games out there these days (Iím looking at you Crysis) that would even utilize the extra RAM, or would I just be wasting my $.
