Hi, guys !
My specs are:
OS: Windows 8.1 Pro
Ram: 4GB 1333Mhz (overclocked to 1600Mhz)
CPU: intel i5 750 2.67Ghz (overclocked to 3.2)
Mobo: Gigabyte P55 UD3
GPU: Sapphire R9 270x Toxic

Atm I'm running games like Crysis 3 for example with 44-45 FPS avarage, min 30, max 70.

How much will my performance increase if i upgrade to 8GB RAM? Will be running at 1600 mhz.

Thanks :)

Not much if any, but I'd upgrade or atleast grab another 4gb stick just because its cheap.

Assuming you have nothing running in the background, your performance won't change much.

I also doubt it would change much.
Benchmarks show a modern i5/i7 rarely needs more than 1600MHz CAS9. Slower CPU's don't need quite as fast DDR3 memory.

*It wasn't clear if you were using only ONE stick or not. If only one stick you might easily have a bottleneck of 20% in some games but that will vary.

I agree, go ahead and get 8GB (2x4GB) or even 1866MHz CAS9 since the price isn't too bad. For many games you might not notice a difference though.

I'm using x2 sticks Apacer 1333 Mhz on dual channel (1.5 V) I want to buy another x2 on 1.5 1333mhz 2 GB, guess i won't need more than 8 gigs anyway in near future. What about the brand? Should I buy another "Apacer " brand or it doesn't matter as long the ram is the same speed and voltage as my other 2 ?
