Your ram is running at 1066Mhz , 533 X 2 = 1066.

That's what I was thinking. I was just hoping that the upgrade would make a big difference, but doesn't seem to be.

What about the Windows Virtual Memory paging file size? I know some of my friends used to recommend setting the min at <1.5 x ram size> and max at <2 x ram size>.

This is not unusual and there's 9.99/10 nothing you can do about it on OEM (PC's and Notebooks).

Most important your RAM (KVR1333D3SOK2/8GR) is Rated at DDR3-1333 CAS 9 and DDR3-1066 CAS 7 overall is pretty close to same over all 'speed'. The 'speed' of RAM is a function of BOTH Frequency and CAS Timing (stops); see below. So IMO there's nothing to worry about and be happy :) 

Negligible Differences:
