|But increasing the ram speed in itself isn't going to make much of a difference. |
Usually if you want better performance you increase the amount of ram not necessarily its speed. But you've already got 8 gig so unless you're running some really memory-intensive software even adding more ram may not make much of a difference.
You ask if it's worth the cost to buy a faster 8 gig stick. That depends on how much it costs and whether you think the price is reasonable. Sure it'll run a little bit faster. I'm just saying that in normal usage you won't notice the difference.
