For what it's worth, Windows uses unallocated RAM for disk cache. For most folks, that's probably where they see a speed improvement with more RAM.

I've observed this with the servers we use for software builds at work. Multiple processors or higher cores reduces build time somewhat, mainly during C++ compiles and linking. Adding RAM reduces build times substantially throughout. I'll admit we get the most bang for our buck from that combined with hardware RAID. Our fastest build machine has 64GB of RAM plus 24 1TB hard drives configured as a RAID-5 array. Our largest product, which required nearly 100 minutes to build on the previous server, now builds in 12 minutes.
