How does your 4GB pull up? I haven't had a chance o play, its only been released in Australia Today and im at work while it was downloading this morning when I left.
Things change. 4GB used to be more than enough. BF3 and future games are likely to change that.

You're absolutely correct, but im sick of seeing threads where new users are deciding on parts, and everyone says, "Id drop the RAM to 4Gb because you don't need any more".

With the current prices on RAM, 8Gb kits should be the norm IMO... and its what OCN users should be recommending to people for their new gaming machines.

You said you aren't running SLI at the moment, how does a single 560ti handle the game? Better with the 6GB of RAM now?

When I boot into windows I am already using about 1.5GBs of RAM and now since RAM is dirt cheap you might as well go with the 8GBs. I would say now the recommended RAM should be 8GB instead of 4GB, 4GB just isn't cutting it anymore.

It actually handles it quite well. the extra RAM helped immensely. I will post a FRAPS "benchmark" of me playing a little later. I am running all ultra settings except for shadows and kicked down the AA just a tad. That helps it cope with game for now.

I am uploading vids to youtube so its gonna be about 20 minutes before I start playing again.

At todays DDR3 RAM costs, there is absolutely no reason not to be running 8gig's nowadays.
