New Flight Sim Gaming Rig - Page 2

post #11 of 15
16 GB is quite cheap at the moment - was gonna say samsung but it has gone up in price over here and there cheaper options.

16 GB - once you have it no need to worry about future games either. There was hint somewhere on the internet that ram prices may be going up thumb.gif

I'd worry more about the RAM on the GPU than 16 gig on the system...8 will be plenty on the MOBO....You would see more of an increase by getting a 4GB GPU or even the 6GB Titan.
