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 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.

Yep, bought the G Skill Ares metallic blue and I didn't want any gaps in my DIMM slots. It's sexy.

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.

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.

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.
