8GB of ram is more than needed on a standard computer.
The only time you will need more than 8GB ram is if you're photoshopping or video editing to do multitasking.

You're not very specific on the exact programs you'll be using.

8GB will be fine.

Get a good GPU for GPU Acceleration and rendering!
