6gb Tri-Channel, Need more?

Hello, I run a Alienware Aurora with i7 920 quad, 6gb RAM, Vertex 2 50gb SSD, 2 1TB in Raid 0, ATI Raedon 5700series. I am wanting to upgrade my RAM in the upcomming months. I am at 6gb Tri-Channel. I am looking at http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820227506. Any opinions?

  1. Hey :)
    What task do you do that needs more than 6GB RAM ?
  2. ^+1, 6GB is plenty for common tasks. If you're planning to video edit though, or do tasks of the sort, then I suppose 12GB would make some sense.
  3. Even for that,6GB is more than enough IMO,unless there are lots of(huge numbers actually) video editings/renderings tasks being done at a same time.
  4. Well I guess I dont need 12gb of RAM. I could settle with 9gb. It honestly bugs me that I have empty slots. I do play some WoW but thats about it.
  5. Then you don't even need a core i7 rig made by alienware to do play it xD
  6. 9GB for playing WOW ? even 2GB is enough for that game :)
