    Attention How much RAM is your main PC running

    I decided that I needed a new Graphix card, my trusty 550 Ti was getting warm and I wanted to play newer games. So I got my self a 1060 6g SC (Evga) and its awesome. Trouble is the freebie game needed more than 6 gig of memory. My rig had 6 gig of triple channel memory running at 553 mhz. So I decided in order to play this game at its full potential I need more memory. Anyhow I managed to get 12 gig on ebay for £58 stuck it in the rig with my older memory and it all booted up fantastically with 18 gig to play with. I dunno how 553 and 800 memory are compatible but its working fine. So my point is how much memory do you girls and boys have in your main RIG.

    Just coping with 32Gb here.
    Was considering doubling up to 64Gb. RAM not an issue, my systems bottleneck is drive speed these days i think. I still get lockups known again, need to investigate TBF.

    32Gb DDR3 - CPU runing at 4.0Ghz (overclocked)
    12Gb - NVIDIA Titan X GFX Card

    I'm not a gamer, I do coding and use top of the 3D rendering software, rendering just a single image requires 32Gb on the mobo! Designing I could get away with 16Gb, but it wouldnt render without an extra 16Gb.

    32gb overkill as it can never use it.

    To be honest mate, I may be being unfair - I have a 5-year old mobo too, so it might be that.

    16GB DDR3 in my sandybridge PC (going like a trooper, no idea how this machine is lasting so long) and 20GB DDR4 in my T460s which is the max it can handle I think. Don't need this much usually but handy for VMs.

    16GB ddr3 but am planning a new build and will got with 32gb ddr4 I assume.

    Mine is mostly Visual Studio using up the RAM I suppose. The Mrs does use photoshop & lightroom which are greedy fuckers.

    Your RAM will use the lowest speed used, so you may find it faster even with less RAM if you ditch the old slower stuff.

    Not a lot will uitilise 18GB anyway unless your rendering etc... so you'll be fine with 12.

    Just taken it out (the old ram that is). seen prices on fleabay are like £20+ for it so its going on there
    I think 12 gig should be enough, that's 4 gig more than the recommended spec for ghost recon

    16gig in mine, I originally built the machine with 8 but found that when I got my 1440p monitor it would complain about low memory with more than a few 24mpix photos open in photoshop.

    My laptop runs the same OS with just 2gig, but a far lower res screen.

    I've had 24Gb RAM (4x4Gb + 8x1Gb DDR2 FB-DIMMS) in my desktop for ages (it can actually take up to 16x8Gb for total of 128Gb).

    I has 500Gb SSD, but it runs like a bag of shite though, as it's based on a C2Q based Xeon 2.66 overclocked to 3.2. Also Win10 doesn't get on with my Geforce 7800GTX.

    However most of my usage is just browsing to find info, holding files and basic ms office usage, so it still serves my needs.

    My laptop's got 8Gb, although many of the windows installs on that laptop are only x86 so I hardly ever make use of more than 4Gb.
