If and when RAM prices drop I may get 16 or 32 GB. Perhaps use some of that as a RAM disk or I might wait for my next build when there are 16+ GB sticks out. --- I have built http://pcpartpicker.com/p/P5kr - Minus a few parts.
I actually have 24GB but I forgot Home Premium is limited to 16GB. Oh well. Not like I need the 16GB, anyway, even with the video production I do. --- firstname.lastname@example.orgGhz, XFX Radeon HD 6870, ASUS P8Z68-V/Gen3, 2x8GB G.Skill DDR3 1600, Crucial M4 64GB SSD, WD Caviar Blue 1TB HDD, XFX Pro650W Core, Corsair 650D
Yep, bought the G Skill Ares metallic blue and I didn't want any gaps in my DIMM slots. It's sexy. --- i5-3570k | ASRock Z77 Extreme6 | EVGA 560Ti 448 Classified x2 SLI | 16GB G.Skill Ares | Corsair 600T White | 212 EVO | HX750
Nope, 8GB is plenty for me. Might consider it the next time I upgrade my CPU if I end up buying a CPU/motherboard/RAM package deal (since the main PC component site around here usually offers quite a few of those), but I can't really see it being too necessary even a few years from now. --- Currently playing: Grim Dawn (PC), Rayman Origins (PC)
Yes, because why not? A little extra money for the assurance that ram will not be a bottleneck in the future.. makes sense to me. --- "If you can't beat them, arrange to have them beaten" -George Carlin

Why not wait until it is actually a bottleneck, then buy more when it will most likely be cheaper? I always find this argument perplexing. Dog **** is cheap too, but that doesn't mean it's a good idea to buy as much as possible. --- Posted using GameFlux
