Hi my system set up is

vista ultimate 64bit
intel i7 960@ 3.2ghz (unclocked)
6gb corsair dominator gt 2000mhz DDR3
zotac gtx590
2 x 1TB WD black caviar in RAID0

My question is if i buy another 6gb kit of the same ram, will i notice a difference is game performance crysis 2, battlefield 3 etc..
some people who i have asked said you can have too much ram and getting twice as much wouldn't do anything, while others said that i would see a difference if only slight, and basically you can never have enough.

many thanks in advanced.

no you dont need more ram for gaming

The 6gb of ram you currently have is more than enough to play games, the only time you truly benefit (as in seeing a difference) from extra ram is when you run any developer/designing heavy memory using applications, like any 64-bit Adobe apps or AutoCADs.
