I use over 8GB of RAM all the time. Any game that uses over 4GB of RAM will be really uncomfortable to play with 8GB of RAM.

Name all the games you have played that physically take up 4GB or more of RAM themselves.

Fallout 4, Witcher 3, (modded) Skyrim, GTA V, seems like most open-world games are RAM hogs. Usually happens when you have a game on for long periods of time.

The most WItcher 3 and GTA V took up for me was maybe 3.5GB but it averaged to be more like 3.2

lmao I'm on my latop right now and already 64% of memory is taken up (5 gigs and some change out of 8).

My simple browsing habits alone take up 5 gigs of ram (i have 21 chrome tabs open+skype+ steam) If I opened up a game right now I'd most likely see major performance hits while on my desktop with 32 gb of ram I'd be good to go.
