Hello everyone. Im new to the computer building scene and I am doing some research for a new gaming rig I plan on building in approx. 2-3 months. I hear that 16GB of RAM for gaming is overkill. I was wondering how much of a performance increase I could expect to see from the additional 8GB RAM (assuming both the 8GB and 16GB sets of ram are running at the same speed). Does it vary from game to game or different resolutions? I plan on using an i7 2600k (overclock goal is 4.5ghz). Not sure if relevant but I plan on playing at 1080p. Thanks in advance for any input.
