Prime95 testing FTW .

On a daily basis, I can easily pass 7GB usage.
Wow and I thought I was using a lot ... Maybe I should have made the poll a little taller.

Currently using 2.8GB out of 4GB. I can't see myself ever needing more than 4GB of RAM.

That is exactly the point Sir.. I want a result of a on the spot moment in time. This will help people decide just how much ram they should buy for their new builds. Including me.

If it's mostly used for browsing or other light apps, 2GB is enough. If it's primarily a gamer rig, go with 4-6GB. If it's a video/music/photo editing build and used heavily, go with 8GB or more.

I am on Win7 64-bit. Average RAM usage ranges between 3.3 -4.1GB. Typical applications in use are Rainmeter, Google Screensaver, Firefox, Chrome, Winamp, and F@H (-smp6).
