32gb worth it? Or should I stick with 16?

I'm buying a computer with 4gb VRAM.

I will use the following software: maya (modeling/animation; plus rendering), Photoshop, and flash.

Not sure if upgrading the ram would be with it instead of 16gb.

Edit: I also want to do some gaming on it. Nothing serious of course.

If you got the money for it, go for it. Just make sure you aren't using W7 Home premium, as it has a 16GB limit on memory.

Son of a *****, that sucks. I was thinking of upgrading and this adds over a hundred dollars to the cost...

you can get win 8 OEM for $100 to save some $, and it supports up to 128 GB. if you're doing a lot of rendering, yes 32 GB is very nice to have, but 16 GB should be enough.

There's really not much reason to have 32 GB of RAM at the moment. 16 is already overkill for most tasks.

That's true in most situations but you can't really say that without knowing how he uses Maya or Photoshop!

I use a lot of autodesk, solidworks, and adobe. 32gb is already feeling like a limit. If you're serious about rendering, get as much ram as u can afford.
