I bought the base unit above. With only 4Gb of RAM. I upgraded the hard drive to an SSD and that makes the machine boot up crazy fast.

My question is will upgrading the RAM to 8 or beyond really do anything for basic use? Do I need more than 4? How can I tell if I am maxing out the memory I have

You can tell how much RAM your using by opening up the task manager and going to the performance tab. There you will see a meter with your current RAM usage. If it's near, or at, the max doing your normal tasks (you should monitor while your gaming and such as well) then you should consider upgrading.

Yeah 4 gb is fine, 8 gb is just if you want to be certainly sure you won't be able any ram related issues.
