    Would more memory really make a difference?

      I am running Premiere CS4 on a Windows Vista 64 bit machine with a quad core processor and 4 GB of memory.  No matter what I do in CS4, from rendering effects in Premiere to converting a file in Media Encoder to transcoding video for a blu-ray disc in Encore, I see the same thing in the performance section of task manager - all four cores of my processor at 100% and a maximum of 3 GB of memory being used.  Since my system never wants to use more than 3 GB of memory for any task, would there be any benefit to upgrading to 8 GB of memory?
