You are relatively correct. Windows 7 x64 professional caps out at 16 GB with Windows 8 professional (which I'll be running) capping out at an absurd number.
32 GB for a gaming machine is indeed excessive, as is my processor choice, however this may turn into a workstation of sorts later on down the line and I'll want to be ready.
