I think Skyrim heavily modded has memory leak problems, not ram problems.

That's true. I go with 4GB for the VM that runs my server

I can have DayZ, Chivalry, and a Minecraft server running on Linux on a virtual machine all going at the same time and still not use 8GB of RAM. 8 gigs is fine for most people.


This entirely depends on how much RAM you allocate for your virtual machine haha... FAIL.

I can have 0 programs running on my VM and it will use 16 gigs of RAM. What the deuce.

The average gamer isn't going to be using a VM, much less one with an excessive (even for most VM purposes) 16GB RAM allocation.

8GB is NOT enough RAM. I am telling you this from experience. Get 16GB and be happy for a long time. If I could I would easily go to 16 myself.

We just keep doing the wrong thing until it turns out right.

FYI. Memory and RAM are the same exact thing

Having a lot of RAM is a decent workaround for memory leaks.

If you play a lot of F2P games and MMO's, 16GB can be helpful. These games eat up a crapton of RAM and tend to have memory leak problems.
