With prices this low ($29.99 for the same RAM I paid $100 for last March) I'm tempted, but will 16 GB be of any value? The most demanding applications I anticipate running are video encoding, CAD, finite element stress analysis and multiphysics simulations. I'm also planning on adding a SSD and want to turn off page file to save room and wear.

For programs like that, you will probably notice a boost in performance but not a ton. If you want to get it, there is no harm at all.
