No. Adding more memory increases the time it takes for memory to be
addressed. Don't put much stock in the WEI, though. Vista will run
things much better with more RAM regardless of the score.
WEI measures throughput, not amount. I had a 5.3 with 4GB. I went up
to 8GB and my WEI dropped to 5.0 All other scores are 5.9, though.
