Do the test I described on the first page on this thread before you spend your $$ on more RAM. If you're not using the 8 that's in there, bumping to 16 will not make any difference at all. More RAM does not give you more speed unless you're already using all the memory you have.
But based on the age of your machine, if you really want a speed boost I'd recommend first swapping the HDD for an SSD - that'll make a significant difference in speed.
