How much ram for gaming?

I have one last question for the community, I am trying to decide what amount of RAM I will need. I think I will only need 8 Gb Corsair Vengeance ram 2133. For most modern games at least. Thanks!

    Corsair Vengeance, Crucial Ballistix, Or G.Skill Ripjaws are my recommendations. 8GB should be plenty for games. The Optimal settings on the highest graphical games go around 4GB-8GB like Crisis 3

    Yes, I'd go with 16GB for some future proofing. Besides, you can make a RAM disk and use it for your internet cache, save wear and tear on the SSD.

    You will get very little extra performance overclocking the RAM. Better to go with cheaper 1600 RAM and you can overclock the CPU cores faster.
  3. What mobo and CPU, and what else do you do with your rig, 8GB is normally for most folks, the CPU and mobo play in to the equation.
