System:
i7 860 @ 3.2Ghz
4GB @ 1450Mhz CL7
XFX 6970 2GB
Gigabyte P55A-UD3

Games:
Battlefield: Bad Company 2

Crysis Warhead
S.T.A.L.K.E.R. Call of Pripyat

You would see some slow down but with out benchmarking it I can not say how much, you could try that yourself.

That's a good idea. I will try benchmarking. I wish BF:BC2 had a benchmark. What games would you expect to slow? In what way? How much? Would 3.5GB be significantly better than 3GB?
