Crucial is one ram company i have no use for. My friend had some of the crucial ballistix tracers. Well one stick died, so he gets a rma and they send back some cheesy low spec crap ram that was like 3rd less of the price he paid for the ballistix and that was it. They replied back after he asked about the speed and price difference. That he needed to settle for what he got even though it was cheap ram compared to the ones he bought. Heck of a way to do someone.

You said you use Adobe (everything). Adobe loves ram, so if you use these programs a lot go with the 16 gigs, especially if it is cheaper.

I run a system for my buddy who uses Photoshop for her professional business. She uses all 16 gigs at times due to the complexity of her work. 8 IS enough but 16 is better.

Hm, i`m using cinema 4d and it`s not very RAM intensiv. But you wrote you use some Adobe stuff, they are very RAM hungry. My After Effects rendering is using on havy comps 12GB+ ! But i`m not shure if more RAM saves you time, if you got only 8GB but supertight timing maybe this would give you better results...
