I'm running Lion and only have 2 GBs of RAM (I have an early 2008 iMac) and have noticed it runs fairly sluggishly and many apps freeze or crash. I usually run 3+ apps at once (i.e., Firefox, iTunes, Mail, and maybe iPhoto or Logic) and had no problem running it on Snow Leopard. Is upgrading to 4 GBs of RAM worth it and would it help speed up Lion? I'm trying to avoid getting a new Mac at the moment since I'm on a tight budget and would just like to speed it up so I can take full advantage of Lion. By the way, my Mac is only expandable to 4 GBs of RAM. Thanks for the help.

iMac, Mac OS X (10.7.4), Early-2008 20"
