that's the thing, i dont even know really. most i've ever had was 4gb. i'm starting to do more video/3d though. after taking some suggestions i read some reviews that ram speed didn't make a vast improvement and on some things the lower speeds were actually more beneficial. Also that higher speeds were less reliable long-term by significant percentages. Thinking I need this to last a few years I purchased that 1600 cas 9 32gb.
i think my main concern now is I just also purchased my first ssd (samsung 840) and it's only 120gb. I remember reading about windows page file being associated with your total ram taking up valuable space on the ssd. Ofcourse I will be looking into that in more detail before my parts arrive.
