I just found out, last month, my new x58 board supports 48GB DDR3, so... you know... when 8GB sticks becomes affordable, I may... acquire ... six of them biggrin.gif

Woo are there seriously people who use 16 gb or more? I thought you don't need that much ram today but do you need at least 8gb or 16gb today? My notebook can only go upto 8gb so if we need 16gb that's not good since my notebook can't go that high. I currently have just 4gb but if I need to max out and have 8gb let me know.



Thanks

I'm only waiting for the Corsair Vengeance low profile 16gb kits come out so I can buy a kit, the tall heat spreaders get into the way of the V6GT memory slot #1 so I can just use slot #2 and #4 atm.

Do I need 16gb? nah, but hell ram is SO cheap this days specially when I know years ago they costed a fortune, so yeah I dont give a damn if I need 16gb or not LOL!

Uh I think you'll be fine at 4GB. I can play any game and generally multitask alongside it, though I probably can't run 3 games at once. I think you can honestly survive with 2GBs quite easily, assuming you don't need to have multiple games.
post #85 of 1230
Well how long will having just 4gb be not enough? Like how many years from now do you think having 4gb will be enough? I would like to know this.
post #86 of 1230
Well, it depends on how you define "need". I started wanting more RAM because I had an SSD and wanted to get rid of the page file. In order to avoid having problems without a page file, 4GB was insufficient. This holds true for OSX as well as Win7. My macbook is now able to operate without any page file with 8GB and I can see that the memory utilization often hits 7GB when I have a lot of programs running. On win7 the same thing occurs: Even on my work laptop 4GB is the very minimum I would run it at but at 4GB I am either having to have a pagefile on the hard drive slowing down the system or I will have to limit what I do on the computer. 6GB I would say is the minimum needed under regular/heavy utilization. 8GB is comfortable. Beyond that it is kind of overkill but it really depends what you do. Video or high resolution image editing/creation would wipe 12GB out in a hurry.

I use my notebook mainly for playing games like Crysis 2, The Sims 3, Quake 4, etc. I do also use my notebook for browsing the web, going onto forums, watching YouTube, going to Facebook, etc. I do listen to my music using Windows Media Player and watch downloaded YouTube videos using RealPlayer. Of cource I have Yahoo messenger too. But do I need more than 4gb for this stuff? Or is 4gb enough? I wonder if there will be a time that I will need 8gb though. Or will I likely not need more than 4gb for the next 3 years.


Thanks

It's hard to tell. 4GB has been fine for a while now, the most I've seen ANY game use is close to 2GB (but still not reaching it). The regular things you're doing can be done with 1-2 gigs.
post #89 of 1230
Yup, I agree with Narzon. I get to 4GB rapidly because:
a) I disabled my pagefile so everything is stored in RAM
b) Even when I browse the web, I have at least 10 tabs open with a long history behind each.
With this I hover around 2GB-2.5GB.
If I start doing work and open office stuff, I get to 4GB easily but I very rarely get over 5GB.
