Just wondering if I really need 16gb of RAM for my computer, all I will be doing is using it for gaming basically or is it better to use the extra money on a better GPU or other component. Would be getting gskills 1600mhz ram
I don't know how much longer 8gb will be over kill for....check out the specs for Crysis 3. This is for what they call the "performance machine requirements", so you don't NEED this....but how else do you want to play a game if you can?
"Hi-performance system requirements for PC
Windows Vista, Windows 7 or Windows 8 •
Latest DirectX 11 graphics card •
Latest quad core CPU
Nvidia/Intel example setup: NVidia GTX 680, Intel Core i7-2600k
AMD example setup: AMD Radeon HD7970, AMD Bulldozer FX4150"
Thats heavy duty...and only a couple months from now.
I have 16GB on win 7 and I'd hate to think that if I only had 8GB I'd have to play the "juggle my resources" game.
At the very least you might want to start thinking about it...
