Does the brand/quality of your ram make a significant difference? Enough to fork out 60/70 quid to upgrade?

Depends on the rest of the components, a good CPU and video chip or add on video card will be complimented by the correct amount and type of Ram.

Enough to fork out 60/70 quid to upgrade?

See the above answer, if you let us know what your MB is brand and model we can have a look for your best options.

If this is your present Ram then it cannot be improved upon.
