    just get some trident x 8GB for £44 http://www.cclonline.com/product/812...y-Kit/RAM0567/

    or 16GB http://www.cclonline.com/product/181...emory/RAM2863/

    the best ddr3 ram there is for 1600mhz or more, just keep uping the volts and the nano second latency goes down in aida64 without changing timings

    Re: Current RAM quantity - 4GB, or more?

    Well, two days ago, I decided to upgrade from my system memory from 6GB to 16GB. I was tired of my machine crawling to an halt (and occasionally to a crash), with hard faults/sec exceeding 100 at time in the resource manager. And that's not even my heaviest usage pattern. The problem is that some of my standard background application, namely CrashPlan, (but also AdblockPlus, AV, and others) can easily eat up over 4GB. Once I start doing some work, it can quite easily tilt to over 6GB.

    Right now, I am not running a lot of applications, but I am already using 44% of my memory. At this point I could get away with 8GB, but I think that I could hit up to 12GB just running a couple of applications or have more tabs open. I don't see myself using up to 16GB, but it's definitely nice to have some leeway.

    Posting here because I don't think it warranted a new thread, but I am still quite happy that the upgrade was worth it (I recall once upon a time when I upgraded from 4MB to 12MB but finding it still quite underwhelming - since then, I have pretty much stuck with the amount of RAM I started off with in each build)

    For gaming purposes it would now appear that 16gb is about to become the new standard, as a couple of impending games are listing such in their recommended specs.

    Cripes!

    Minimum 8GB, but ideally 16GB. But all prices are terrible.

    Various reasons, but I suspect the two most common are:

    People register on Hexus wanting to talk about a particular issue, so they search for relevant threads and post answers/comments in any relevant thread they find;

    People want to boost their relevant, contributing post counts for the various rewards we offer (notably the free Scan delivery at 20 posts) and question threads like this one are easy to post a short reply that is still relevant to the thread/topic.

    Once a thread get bumped back to the top of its sub-forum, other users will drop in and comment on it, often not noticing that it's an older thread that's been bumped by a drive-by necro. This can breathe interesting new life into the thread & its sub-forum, which is why as a forum we don't automatically close or delete inactive threads.

    The downside of that policy is that you do occasionally get random threads popping back up to the top of the pile! I shouldn't worry about it though - they'll only stay here if people keep posting in them...
