You don't *need* to resize the swap area when upgrading memory - unless
you plan on using even more virtual memory than you were before.

*If* you were to add more swap, you'd probably need to re-partition to
make room for more swap somewhere. 

In a pinch, you can even use swap *files* rather than disk partitions,
but allegedly they don't perform that well.
