I'm sorry but it seems you might have missed how the layout of my Specs were. The description includes the multiplying digit. There's "2x" 4GB meaning a total of 8GB. If it wasn't clear enough forgive me but the comment that my funds and efforts seemed measly isn't very appreciated. Just my two cents.

Aside from that I have yet to decide if I will get another 2x 4gb pack to total out to 16gb. I'll see how much I really use when running all my major programs together. I'm excited to see the capabilties of the baseline and especially how far it can be taken. End goal is to build something somewhat future secured. I have no doubt this build will run everything off the shelf and also should be fairly upgradable. The only true upgrade I forsee right now would be the 2011 socket upgrade around December. Everything else should still keep up just fine.
