filter_list Is 32GB RAM worth it?

RE: Is 32GB RAM worth it? #31
I was just contemplating this myself, but opted for 16 rather than 32. The most I do is stream music, have a VM or two running, web browsing, and maybe photoshop open at once. Everything still runs smoothly. I figured by the time I would truly need 32 gigs of ram, the price would be less anyways. I'd stick with 16 and spend that extra $100 somewhere else on your pc.

Knowing how your memory's timings and transfer rates impact performance can go a long way and save you a lot of money. If you're smart about it, you'll almost never need 32GB.

it depends on what you are doing.

as an example, if you're doing gaming, you'll never need more than 16GB of RAM.

If you like to do video editing while working on some 3D rendering on AutoCAD as an example (me), you'll probably need 32GB and probably more.
I use 24GB of RAM and consider upgrading to a 64GB set.

I would go for 32GB RAM myself for sure.
I think in the future, the requirements of RAM will rise, so why not buying it now.
Also, I use alot of RAM intensive applications myself, hence I would pick this

I decided to go with 32GB when I built my machine. I didn't need it at the time but eventually I went with things like ramdisk caching, running multiple VMs, and a fuckton of chrome tabs and I'm glad I had it. I actually ended up needing to replace it with 32GB of faster memory. I'd say it's always a good idea in today's society, especially if microsoft keeps building memory hogs disguised as operating systems.

I've always said It's best to have an overkill of Ram, than the probability of not having enough In the near future. I also run simultaneous VMs- of which they're quite hungry on system resources, namely Ram. I've only got 16GB and along with other multitasking, It does run low at times.

I do believe in the long run it will be worth it, RAM (at least where I am) isn't too expensive at the moment either and would help a lot when video editing, running virtual machines and just multitasking in general.
