Intel Core 2 Quad Pro Q6600 95W Energy Efficient 2.4GHz SLACR G0 Stepping
OCZ 4GB Kit (2x2048) NVIDIA SLI - Ready Edition DDR2 PC2 6400 800MHz Dual Channel EPP 5-4-4-15
OCZ 600GXSSLI-UK nVidia SliReady600W Power Whisper Technology Active PFC

2 x(SLI)512MB XFX 9600 GT, PCI-E 2.0 (x16), Mem 1800 MHz, GDDR3, GPU 700 MHz(OC'ed alittle)

You might see a small increase in some games but not much. But I'd imagine in programs such as Photoshop you would probably see some increase for sure. Does this justify jumping to 8gb? That's up to you I guess. Personally, I had the money to blow so I did, I don't know if it makes my machine any better, but it certainly hasn't made it any worse. :)
