32 GB ram


H

Hench

I built a system and decided to max out the ram at 32 gb.

Not sure why I did other than the ram i bought was on sale.

Most of my habits use about 10-20% and peak usage was about 14 gb that I
ever saw, and this is with NO page file:

I'm thinking of selling 16 gb because it's going to waste but wondered
what other people thot about the future and if it's worth keeping all 32
GB. Anything think there will be a demand for that much ram down the
road...

system specs:

Intel I7 3770K
1 SSD
9 Sata hard drives
nVidia 650ti 1 GB vid card
no page file (well actually i use a 100 mb page file for a couple of games)
Windows 7 pro 64 bit

I'd say leave it in there. Right now the sweet spot is 8GB, so 32GB is
at least two future sweet spots away. But you won't ever regret having
too much RAM, but you will regret having not enough.

I'm using 1G. It's better than 512Meg, but not at 2G for getting
around pretty good in with what I do for a main box. Relatively, 2G on
another entertainment box, better than this 3Ghz CPU, I don't even use
it all, but instead I occasionally hit its processing limits for a
dual-core 4200 AMD.

It depends on what you do with your system.

As I write this I'm using just over 12gb and that's without anything
heavy running other than a couple of virtual machines. Going past
16gb would be easy.
