Stuck in the same situation now... If i am to use this system mainly for running VMs and light photoshop/vid editing would i notice much difference on a haswell system? I liked the idea of having 12GB of triple channel ram, how do the two compare (options on a Haswell bundle i was looking into had a 4GB,6GB,8GB or 16GB dual channel ram)...should i aim for around the same amount of ram??ie 16gb or better yet 32gb or would that be too overkill?
