Posting in obvious troll topic

16 gigs for future proofing, video editing and multitasking.
32-128 for :
Large 3d editing
Big servers
Ramdisks
Virtual Machines

the problem is ur running all that nonsense, thats why you need more useless ram, thats the problem nowadays, to many people doing to much at once, get over yourself.


Took longer than I expected for you to get to troll status. Who cares if people multitask? I have 16GB of RAM cause I am ALWAYS multitasking. Does it hurt you that I do that? No, so why do you care enough to make snarky remarks?

I've got 16GB of ram because I like having a 6-8gb ramdisk. With some games, it's a Godsend.

For all the people using all that RAM, how about you just close the useless stuff before you play a game? All those program's I see listed are USELESS once you go into the game so CLOSE THEM and there you go, no need for 2389gb of ram.

are people seriously bothered by this? When I render a video I rather play other games at the same time while waiting and with skype + 5-6 other things open I'm glad to have 16 GB, why am I suddenly worse than Hitler just because I don't want to do nothing while watching the render progress bar fill up?

make topic asking for opinions

At least 6 GB spec wise.

But most games dont even use that much - require like 3-4 GB at most. But dont get exactly 4GB since you will be needing RAM to use other things such as processes in the back.

More RAM the better though.
