How will OS X Mavericks perform on iMac 8,1

Posted on Oct 22, 2013 9:04 AM, Apple Support Communities - OS X Mavericks | discussions.apple.com

I see that minimum requirements for OS X Mavericks is 2 GB RAM.   I have 4 GB on an iMac 8,1 (early 2008) 2.4 GHz.   Is it smart to upgrade or will performance be so bad I will regret it?   I am running Lion now and that is fine, but skipped Mountain Lion because I read that it was quite the resource hog. Anybody have a thought or better yet experience?
