My set up is as follows: ASUS A88X-Pro mobo, AMD A10-6800K, Radeon 6670 1GB GPU, Samsung 840 Pro 256GB SSD, Crucial 120GB SSD M500 and a WD 1TB Blue. My question is this. I currently have 8 GB RAM, G. Skill 2x4GB 2100 MHz. Should I upgrade RAM to 16GB? Same exact set in two extra DIMM slots so it will be 4x4GB 2100 MHz. I can already play high end Steam games, but going to learn Windows Office 2013 programs. Yes, all of them, lol. So in conclusion, 8GB or 16GB? Any and all help will be appreciated.
Thank you,
Christian

If you are going to use 3d max than you need 16GB but if you play games 8GB will be plenty

I will mostly run Office 2013 Power Point, which requires, as you know, to switch between drives for items. But not going to be gaming and running Office at same time. Just with 3 total drives, scares me. But that's why I'm asking. Thanks for quick response.

I do enterprise level development with Office. Office 2013 does not require 16GB RAM.
You will be fine with the 8GB you have.
