It may be sensible to buy that amount of ram given the price is so low, yes. However, if you intend to run a 32 bit version of Windows, then it won't fully support anything above about 3.5GB of memory....

No game uses 8GB of memory, so even under a 64-bit OS, buying 8GB would not be sensible unless you have money to waste. Unless you are doing image or video editing with very, very large files, 4GB will be more than enough.
