I currently run 2 x 4GB DDR2 800MHz RAM in my Windows 7 64-bit PC (C2Q 9450, Asus P5N-D).

I have come upon another 2 x 4GB DDR2 800MHz RAM (of different brand) and was wondering if I add it to ake a 4 x 8GB config, will I see any significant improvement in what I do?

What I do is:

Play World of Warcraft (including the upcoming expansion)
Play Dragon Age:o rigins (occasionally)
Download newsgroup files using Newsleecher app
Multimedia on the web (surf)

8GB DDR2 RAM is sufficient for your purpose. Adding another 8GB will not give more significant improvement which can be readily observed.

So you are saying that moving from 4GB DDR2 to 8GB DDR2 in the config I stated above is a good move, unlike moving above 8GB?

Yes. 8GB will be enough. What you will need is good graphics processing unit.

Will this improve World of Warcraft in any way? Or only higher end games?

This will improve especially Dragon Age. Also 8GB RAM will make your playing experience smoother in any game alongwith multitasking; provided that you have a good GPU.

I have a 8800GT OC2 right now, but going to get an ATI 5850 Sapphire soon.

What's the difference between the XFX 5850 and the Sapphire one? (other than $40)

Actually there is no practical difference when it comes to gameplay. As I've seen, it's only a matter of personal preference. Both are very good company.
