When you can get 512MB sticks of PC133 for $25 there should never be a reason
to have caching from insufficient memory.  If you were paying the prices of 5
years ago then you would definitely get diminishing returns from under
utilized RAM but not these days.

There is no direct scaling. Once you have enough memory to avoid thrashing
then additional memory just avoids some disk access with rapidly
diminishing returns. 

If you are not seeing significant disk activity while working additional
memory will provide no performance increase.
