You feast on red herring because it is your birthright.

I've seen plenty of games use more than 8gb. BO 3 is the reason I upgraded to 16gb tbh. It was a mess with 8gb at any setting but smooth as butter with 16gb.

It's important to know what the rules are first, so that, when you decide to break them, you can better judge the effect.

The game would not work with 8gb (by not work I mean fps going from 25-45 all over the place. Usually closer to 25. Also hard freezes in menus.). It worked with 16gb ( by that I mean around 80-100 fps or a locked 60). Ram was the only change. I thought I was clear?

"I've seen plenty of games use more than 8gb."

I was talking about generally speaking. Also that sounds like bad optimization as well..its Call of Duty sorry but that game should not require that much ram.

To be fair, I didn't try the games with 8gb after I got 16gb. So I have no way to know if the game wont work like BO3 or it's just using more ram because it can. bikeblaster gave a good list of games that use more than 8gb of ram and I could probably add a few more.

It's nowhere near 12 GB. It seems that something is wrong if you have such severe memory issues.

As I said, fresh installs. I also used the word 'can'.

Anyway, lucky you.

As was said before: I don't need it for gaming, I need it for work.
