I have 16GB, let me tell you, I have only used over 8GB twice EVER! It was when I was streaming, playing BF4 and rendering a project all at the same time. Then I used 16GB. The other time was when I was rendering and using Adobe After Effects at the same time. When your gaming, even while streaming, you wont use more then 8GB. If you do, I'm not sure how you managed that.

Take my word for it, 8GB (2x4GB) of 1866 is more then enough for a gamer, just barely under enough for a streamer that I wouldn't recommend getting more unless you had tons of extra cash.

Also, don't get me wrong, I'm a fan of EVGA (my first card was an EVGA 7900 GT IIRC?), but both the PSU you're recommending and the one I wanna go with are great, and both have great warranties.

RM 750 watts is just as bad if not worse then the RM650 so no point in doing that, unless you got it really cheap you should return it as its not worth the normal price shops want for it
