A stick of RAM requires such little wattage, that there is not enough power draw to consider it for the wattage of the overall PSU... A stick of RAM uses about as much power as a fan, if not less...

Yes, more RAM = higher power consumption. RAM consumes (in relation to the other parts) very little power and I've never heard adding RAM sticks breaking the camel's back; you really don't need to worry about whether your PSU can handle it or not when adding RAM sticks.
