I was just looking at some high end mobo's and i couldn't help think to myself...why would you need so much?Some of the high end mobos maximum capicity is around 54gbs of ram.

I don't even see a need for more than 8g...

Isn't their some king of thershold you would reach that you wouldn't/can't notice a difference between 10g and 50g of ram?

Maybe tons of ram for a workstation would be good but I do see your point for enthusiast board to have all that ram for gaming and what not.

Don't you reach some sort of threshold for how much memory will actually make a difference?

Actually, for most people, the threshold is around 8 GB.

But when you are talking truly "high-end", you are talking "professional". And the rules change. Time is truly money. Professional level editing of graphics images (Photoshop), video editing and rendering: the few seconds that you wait on your system adds up.

I barely use all the 6GB that I have loaded into my system. Albeit I do not use too many memory intensive apps, but what little V/A editing I have done, have yet to see the 6GB be an issue.

Their not very "clean" or they are great multitaskers.I helped someone a couple weeks ago that was looking for a new GPU,he said he used like 8G and he does lots of editing or somewhat.Basicly he leaves a bunch of windows open at one time and hes just boucing around from place to place.

CAD, Video Editing, Rendering, Hi Definition Graphics (i.e. Adobe anything), large database manipulation all like large amounts of RAM
