    16gb, I've never ran out of memory, but then I only game, web and watch films on my PC

    Re: QOTW: How much memory is inside your PC?

    256Gb in a Dual Xeon system (a pair of E5-2687W I think), an old Z820 which is used as a render server. Then I have two rigs for video work with 64gb and my oldest system a 10 year old Phenom is just 16Gb which is due to be retired. It's replacement system will likely be a Zen 3 with 32Gb. Then I have an old HP DL385 G7 with 128Gb as a HyperV server.

    No particularly reason for having this much hardware, mostly inherited from gigs I've done over the years or salvaged with permission.

    This PC has 32GB - fine with that. Music PC has 16GB and needs a bit more for when huge samples etc. are loaded
    Old puter - still good enuff till I save some pennies!

    16gb in the gaming PC, never use more than half.
    8gb in the HTPC, again never see it touch half !

    Re: QOTW: How much memory is inside your PC?

    Main PC - 32GB which feels fine for now but I'll probably go to 64GB next year.
    2nd PC, Laptop - 16GB, good for most things but some games are starting to struggle
    HTPC, 4th & 5th PCs - 8GB, noticably not enough for anything more than basic work.

    Re: QOTW: How much memory is inside your PC?

    32GB, more than enough for what I use my PC for (and for what runs in the background taking bites out of it).

    Just having my browser open and having the start up programs running uses 20% of that.

    32Gb, but only due to a deal on RAM that someone here posted so I got 32Gb for £102 delivered...

    Re: QOTW: How much memory is inside your PC?

    16GB 3600 generic 'ryzen optimized' corsair stuff. works at that speed with just toggling 2 settings in BIOS.

    it is enough for now. if i was buying now, i'd get that Crucial Ballistix stuff at amazon for £70. maybe even stretch to the 32GB stuff. last computer lasted 10 years or so, so this one should too. got a feeling in 5-6 years 32gb might be needed. 16GB feels ok at the moment, not exactly taxing my system any, need to sort new GPU next, 2GB 750ti, well i'm starting to run newer games (kingdom come, dying light) in medium and its a bit janky. but that also means new monitor, new PSU, 350W will barely run one pixel using a new GPU, and 1680x1050 just ain't cutting in anymore.

    Re: QOTW: How much memory is inside your PC?

    My laptop has 8GB, which is plenty for day to day use.

    Work laptop has 32GB and I get close occasionally when I have to densify huge gene expression datasets, but I've yet to have anything flat refuse to open due to memory constraints (except that one time I was using 32bit python by mistake ).

    Crucial Ballistix RGB BL2K16G36C16U4WL 3600 MHz 32GB

    I've had a couple of games of late using 16GB of RAM. Did they need the RAM maybe not? But I'm sure more games will benefit from anything over 16GB in the near future.

    Re: QOTW: How much memory is inside your PC?

    I too have got 32GB of DDR4-3200.

    I don't expect to need anything more for quite a while to go as I don't think I'll be doing anything that would be memory-intensive enough to need more than that.

    Time will tell as to whether my expectations are correct however.

    Re: QOTW: How much memory is inside your PC?

    16 GB, 4 DIMMS of DDR3 1600 CL9. Upgraded from 8 GB in January, as I'd noticed I'd occasionally be paging a few gigs. Haven't maxed it out since then, so I'll likely stick with it until I switch to Zen 4 and DDR5.

    16GB. Didn't need more when I upgraded last year so figured I'd save the money when I can either get more if I needed it, or wait until DDR5 comes which would need different RAM anyway if I wanted a new platform.
