I have the following system:
Intel I5 750 (stock)
4gb ddr3
128gb OCZ Vertex 4 (not the latest firmware, OS)
1tb WD Green
1920x1200 LCD
Windows 7 Pro, x64

I have just upgraded the video card from a Gigabyte 7770 OC with 1gb ram to a Sapphire 7970 3gb with boost and a stock no name PSU to an Antec truepower 650w.

All this system will be used for are games like Diablo III, The Secret World and other RPG style games.

Will I see any real world performance gain from upgrading my RAM from 4gb to 8 or 16 GB?
(I already know my mobo supports 16gb).

8GB you may see some difference in certain apps, from 8 to 16 none in gaming only.
