Hello,

Specs:

- Corsair Vengeance (2x4GB)
- Corsair TX650
- RaidMax Quantum
- ASRock Z77 Extreme4
- Intel i7 2600k Quad-core 3.1GHz


I was just getting different opinions on upgrading to 16GB RAM and if it would be worth it or should I just stick to 8GB :) 

Hit me! :D 

Thanks

Depends on what you are doing!

Ram is relatively cheap, but depending on what you are doing, won't help, you can always add more later too

ok , is the purpose from this upgrade is mainly for gaming that wont help since any bad ass game don't use more 5 gigs of ram , if you are using your pc for video editing , photo editing , running servers , a lot of multitasking then 16 gigs of ram would be worthy upgrade.
