Hi, I am building my gaming pc and i am little bit confusing about installing and choosing the better RAM. My question is that "Will 8gigs of ram enough for gaming or 16gigs??" If I will go with 16gigs then which layout is better for gaming (4x4gigs) or (2x8gigs)???? My other pc specs are:
i5-3570
ASUS P8H77V
PSU: Cooler Master GX 550W
Geforce GTX 760 2GB

Please guide me!
Thanks :)  :)

8G are fine for gaming ...

allways add RAM in pairs ... to take advantage of dual channel.

so if you get 8 , use 2x4G

and for 16 , use 2x8G

and dont fill up the 4 slots , keep 2 open for future upgrade

And whatever you get, have it be low profile. Less potential hassles later.

With the 3570, best to stick to 1600 - maybe 1866, in a 2x config, only go 4 sticks if maxing out at 32GB (and then 1600 max
