looniam is correct, unless you're using VMs, doing excessive HD Video editing or SQL testing, more than 8GB is overkill. But if you insist, so be it.
Before suggesting exact parts, do you plan on over clocking, or are you just going to run at stock speeds?
Thanks looniam & psaus,
Well, I've a computer lab and I'll use 25 nos. nComputing L300 devices on this server machine. Hence, for supporting multitasking for all 25 users simultaneously, I need 16 GB of RAM.
These all users will also use vmware, as a part of their curriculum. I'm also planning for *optimum* (means safe) overclocking. Hence I need suggestions.
