What is your motherboard? Depend on the MB, some MB can support up to 4GB RAM, 8GB or 16GB, 32GB.
If your MB can support up to 8GB or 16GB, but you may need the 8GB RAM (two of 4GB RAM) for the project.
Also what is your CPU?
MB is ok, can support up to 32 gigs
i5 cpu, so no problem here
what i am interested to know is how much I should spend on memory, because is one thing to buy 8 gigs and another to buy 32
and if buy 8 gigs and find out its not enough its like wasteing money for no gain, and also if I buy a 32 gigs kit and find out 8 gigs were sufficient, its like an overkill investment.
see my problem?
