Actually, maximizing the RAM on any computer will improve its
performance and it is relatively cheap and easy to do. It does not
matter which OS or CPU.

My point though is that there is generally a sweet spot, determined by OS/version and what kind of usage.

Someone on Windows 7 who only does email and web browsing will not benefit much from more than 4GB of RAM, while someone who does a lot of number crunching and graphics work and opening large files will benefit a lot.

My personal 'bare minimum and better' recommendations are aimed at casual users...

There is a point of diminishing returns where more memory will not noticeably improve performance depending on usage with increasing memory. But the demands on the computer tend to increase with time as people use more graphically intensive applications/websites.

Personally, I prefer install the maximum the motherboard can handle.
