There are a lot of places where more RAM will make a big difference, in
things that these days, even the average home user probably does

- image processing
- video processing
- sound processing
- running lots of stuff at once

Or for the not-so-average user:

- running virtual machines
- programming

So as a general rule, always get as much memory as you can possibly
afford. If you can't afford it now, get hardware that can take more
memory later. Disk storage is less important than RAM for the vast
majority of people. Externally-connected or networked storage is easy
and cheap even for the average home use, but you can't attach external
RAM. Adding RAM is *by far* the simplest, cheapest and most reliable way
to improve the performance of almost any personal computer.
