It may, depending on your work habits. Its also likely you won't see a major improvement, you've got enough RAM.

ReadyBoost is made to service fast, random reads and writes for all disk content (not just the page file) by pre-populating the cache from SuperFetch.

Then, when enabled it will intercept all reads and writes and cache any data being written to disk, so in theory if that data is being accessed often and qualifies for random read and random write (i.e not sequential I/O, HDD's are must faster at this), you may see a performance gain.

Readyboost is a dead technology; once over the 2GB system RAM threshold, any difference in performance is negligible at best.

Now, if you were running 512MB, or 1GB of RAM the story would be entirely different altogether; that's not the case here though.
