    A measly 64 GB ECC memory. Go big or go home.

    16GB, never fully utilised and that's with pagefile turned off to reduce ssd writes.

    Currently 32GB but that's not enough long term for 3D work imo, so next build is likely going to be 128GB. If I was just using the pc for games then 32GB would be plenty imo, mind you web browsing is getting pretty memory intensive these days lol.

    Running 128GB in a dual socket mobo.. got another 12 memory slots to fill! It's good for most things, but large datasets slow it down.

    32GB. Which I happened to buy at the time DDR4 ram absolutely peaked in price.
    It's lower than half the price, now. D'oh.

    16Gb and it's plenty so far, although I've heard FS2020 is a memory hog at 4k. No plans to upgrade but we'll see if that'll be enough once I upgrade my GPU.

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

    I have 32GB I think.
    I do need to double this though, as it's RGB RAM and I still have four empty DIMMs that need to blaze with neon hideousness!!

    16GB - I was thinking about extending to 32GB but after some reading I decided to stick with mine 16GB at the moment.

    64GB all for the creative work (I didn't half see a difference on my old machine going from 16GB to 64GB on the same job).

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

    32GB. More than I need really as 16GB would do me fine, but flight sim likes it and there is no harm in filling your slots if you can right?

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

    64GB in this PC, previous 2 computers have been with 32GB, first one of those was back when most people was like " 8 GB are more than anyone will ever need"
    Downside. my 3600 MHZ RAM can not be run at those speeds when i get above 32GB, got it manually tweaked now to do 3500 MHZ

    I am hoping for next PC to be DDR5 and go for 128GB of that.

    If it aint broke,,,,,, just make it better.
