If you're only gaming, 32gb is more than enough and spend that money towards a GPU upgrade all day.
Last night after putting in the second set of (2x16) I booted up and set up my system, (I run a few games but I also do a lot of work with photos and some video work. I also run a secure boot system so I lean towards stability a bit). I opened up as many applications as I could possibly think of, all of Microsoft Office with large files, my photo apps, Hand Brake, monitoring software, put a 4k movie running on VLC about 10 tabs open in Edge and loaded in Steam and started playing a game. All together it only sucked up around 16GB~. So I'm feeling foolish with 64GB. Newegg has the Dominators in a 2x8 kit, what would be better, 3200MHz x 16C or 3600MHz x 18C ? it would actually save me money too
Edit: You saw my GPU huh? lol well I'd have to get a new waterblock too if I got a new GPU and I refuse to buy another xx70 again, if I get a new GPU it's gonna be the 2080ti which is … lots.
