Currently on newegg there is a sale on RAM, I am currently running at 8GB of ddr3 ram and my system runs fine.

However I think I may take the advantage of the sale upping my ram to 16gig

I could get even more ram, as a 16gig set is also on sale for another $40

So pay $40 on 8GB or pay $80 for the 16, I actually have money I can spend on this possible upgrade.

But is it worth $80?

Maybe not, but I do want some opinions, in either case I will be upping my ram as sometimes ram is around $60 or more for around 8GB of ram.

Sure 16GB of ram may be a tad overkill even for gaming but really cant beat $40 for ram with heatspreaders.

Well...I would not expect to see any appreciation from such.  Unless there is some benefit, why bother?

 

What do you...what can you do on your system that would ever benefit from increasing the RAM to that amount?

 

I edit video and it seems to do just fine with 4GB or 8GB RAM...I suppose that gamers may benefit.

Well this rig will become more of a gaming rig anyhow, later this year I intend to get a new GPU.

It could help boost performance in that respect.

8gb of ram should be plenty, but ddr3 might not be around this cheap for much longer.

I mean it cant hurt, especially if i use games that use higher ram
