I agree, my brief mess around with video editing didn't use nearly as much ram as everyone was saying it would, for some reason I doubt it will use 24gb of ram o_0

As a person who does video editing and 3d rendering I can't blame you for dreaming big and if 24gb is what you want I guess you could go for it - I sure would. In fact the demand for 8/12 gig kits is prevalent in image editing.

I think however the safer bet is 12GB and buy an SSD or two and see how that works for you.

I suggest you get this kit instead of the Corsairs from Tiger Direct. These are cheaper and have tighter timings at the same speed and volts. Just saying. If you just want capacity and don't care too much about bandwidth, then this kit is much more affordable... but I couldn't tell you the performance differences between the 2 sets in a video editing scenario...

You know something's wrong when you have RAM with a higher capacity than your first HDD.

Ha, with 24GB of RAM, your RAM is your SSD.
