On a modern system or your sig rig?

I'd say 8GB is the sweet spot.

A modern system.

Right now my rough round up of parts is a Z77 board, 3570K, and Vengeance RAM.

Yeah 8gb is a nice spot.
Try going for 2x4gb instead of one single stick of 8gb.

Using 8gb is enough. Get a 2x4gb kit and you ll be fine. 1600 is the minimum and u can go up 2400 with ivy for some performance gain. What you ll choose depends on your budget as usual.

I would say 16gb [4x4]. Why ? Vegas is ram hungry and eats cpu power like that. Games like crysis 2 with dx11 and hi-res pack on all utra on 1080p use about 5-6 gb of ram so 8 gb for gaming is enough.

8GB is plenty for gaming but Vegas can always use more ram and as ram is cheap I say grab 16GB.

Ram is twice the price it was half a year ago at the moment.
I recommend you wait it out until the price drops again. But other than that yea 8gb is the sweet spot.

Good Value (before memory prices skyrocket)

Does not tolerate voltage increase, i had that kit, one module died at 1.65v.

Other than that, typical Corsair memory, good stuff.

I would recommend 12GB if your going to do some high video editing. For some average editing 8 and baby editing 4GB.When it comes to gaming its always 4+.

8GB for $60? Go for it

Do you need the ram urgently or can wait to get a better deal?
$60 for 2x4gb of that Ram is not a bad deal at all..
