Even a little bit?

I appreciate that my system is getting on now..

Gigabyte X58A-UD3R
i7 920 (DO) @3.8GHz
XFX PRO 750 Modular
Noctua NH-D14
1920x1200 Monitor

The majority of stuff I play is old skool/GOG classics & emulators but occasionally I'll fire up the likes of Witcher 3, Tomb Raider, the recent Doom etc & I've preordered the new Deus Ex.. I often have to dial down the graphical bells & whistles a bit with the newer stuff, but most still run surprisingly well.
Another 8GB of my ram is pretty cheap atm, am I likely to see much of a difference in the newer games if I install it?

The graphics are due to the gpu that you currently have.  Ram would more than likely not help.

Agree with TheJokerz, you won't see any improved performance just from getting more RAM. Its going to be your GPU that is holding you back. the 970 is a pretty decent card for now. So yeah, you won't be able to max out Witcher 3.

If you want increase the speed or transfer rate of system then upgrade ram. Otherwise for gaming the high gpu and cpu can do well.
