__The 16GB RAM CLUB__ - Page 69

post #681 of 1230
It does not make games load faster if you aren't running out already. However, I idle at 5GB or so between all the stuff I leave open. The rest is easily used by VMs and/or RamDisk. I try to leave myself 1-2gb of breathing room.

If you read through the thread, you'll see that some of us consider 16GB not enough.

I started w/ 8. Killed the page file, loaded up my browsers, a few other items, and fired up Batman. Within 20 minutes, I got the message from Windows that she was unhappy and would like me to close programs to save memory. Upgraded to 16, haven't seen the window yet.

It's worth noting the trouble I had w/ some Mushkin 1600 CL8 1.5 2x4GB and Corsair 1600 CL9 1.35 LP Vengeance in 8 and 16GB. They would throw out BSOD's and never last more than a couple hours in LinX w/ my mild 3.6Ghz overclock on an i5 760. Then I ordered the Samsung UDIMM's for a lot less and everything's perfect.

Edit: Here's a snapshot...

The RAM came in terrible packaging and none of the chips matched, but in the end it's all about stability/performance, right? For $80, I don't see why one wouldn't go with 16GB. Especially given this particular RAM doesn't pick a fight w/ the IMC.

Running, virtual PC's within Windows itself. They use up a dedicated amount of RAM which you can set, depending on your needs. They are a great way to run servers and try OS's without having to delete your main OS or swap hard drives.

Mac's use this method to be able to emulate Windows on an OS X environment.
