My general rule of thumb is that 8GB is the "sweep spot" for system memory for Win10 PCs.  While they will work with 4GB or less, they perform better with 8GB.  Beyond that, you will not see any performance gain unless you are running applications that are very demanding on memory.  For most stuff, the extra memory is a waste of money.

I was under the impression that I'd already replied back to you, but this message seems as if I hadn't.   Anyway thanks for the information and I agree with you, but I have already bought the Memory Stick.  Only was $40 Dollars though.
