Well, RAM is RAM and USB stick is USB stick. They do not have the same effect. Yes, you might get a little performance boost with Ready Boost, but that is in no way a substitute for additional RAM. Just compare the access timings and data transfer rates and you will understand. The USB stick only gives you a small performance advantage over the HDD for the paging file. That's all.
