It wouldn't have that much impact no I wouldn't presume.
It'd help more for multitasking and caching of programs and some data. Your video card won't use much of that ram for caching because the max you can set it to is 512mb and as the game is concerned, no.
It's just like a new CPU, it doesn't boost it half as much as you'd think.
The graphics RAM is what matters but this wouldn't help fps much, and only for textures and high resolutions which might help a bit...

well if u get extra ram all i guess it would do is keep that Frame rate but it might let u run some things in the background like another game. it will definately increase loading time. If u always have background programs on then the ram will help with the frame rate but otherwise....meh
well thats wat common sense tells me
