Probably already said but those corsair kits are overpriced and only bought by the less informed. Can get 16GB of G. Skill 2400 for 159.99

My first DDR3 purchase was 6GB of 1333 for 189.99

Yea, I doubt we will ever see those days again.

The last time I looked at the memory I have it was selling for $120, and I bought it for maybe $60. I purchased it right before the big spike in pricing, and had made purchases similar to yours on sales not to much before my own memory purchase.

I think mine was a black Friday 2011 sale tbh (and I'm still running that memory in my folding rig actually).

Ahhh, 2011. The same year I got my first 1TB HDD for $49. Only now, in 2014 are prices just beginning to creep back down to that level...

It's because of SSDs. I guarantee it. They started becoming popular for regular needs. I still think most people fail to see they do little on a system that has cached everything already and they are unaware of RAM disks and that they are multiple times faster than SSDs but anyway.

Would you recommend setting up a ramdisk for every day computing tasks (browsing, streaming, light gaming) instead of an SSD?

No real correlation, they're pretty different technologies.

Yes. It's excellent for the whole profile folder of a browser.

Most people are unware there are is a TON (thousands every hour) of file open/writes on browsing, even on idling. Confirm it with a file activity monitor. I suspect it's related on the 'crash recovery' systems browsers have nowadays.

Put the profile on RAM and you have 0 file opens on actual disk.

Set it to autosave every 1 hour and it's very stable.

Terrible advice..... you don't understand how the file system works and you are recommending people risk corruption for marginal benefits without explaining the risks.

Commonly accessed data is already cached in memory.

Calm down sugar. I have been using system monitors to assess the reality that browsers nowadays are insane on disk access frequency. The system is stable for years.

What have you done? Nothing. Assumptions.

Besides what is gonna corrupt? Losing one bookmark on a freak accident of power failure once every 2 years? Boohoo. If anything having one saving every 1 hour is gonna avoid corruption. Browsers pounding your disks every 2 microseconds might bring total corruption, the best kind of corruption.
