I know this is bait but even 8gb of RAM for the ITX build I just made for my mom is overkill. Facebook eBay and Netflix don't need no 8 gibibytes of ramerino. She definitely doesn't need no God damn 16 giberygoops in that bitch.
>not having at least 32GB of RAM in your main computer
3.2GB with 10+ Chrome tabs. When you give it 32GB to work with, it will use 6GB, since it will pretty much load everything in RAM to make it faster. Are you actually buying RAM to not use it or something?
>You're not entitled to optimisations goy! Just buy more ram!
Fuck even my phone has 4g of RAM.
i'm not really a RAM fag but i'll get a 8-dimms quad-channel mbo (2011-3) and i'll only want to start with 1 16gb module;
Should i be worried about things not working?
Thanks in advance
The computer I built in 2009 had 4GB, then I upgrade to 8GB 2 years later. But that turned out to be insufficient. When I built my current computer last year I put in 32GB instead of 16GB because I figured I would need more. And that actually turned out quite true. Which I would have gone with 64 GB though for those few times I need to run multiple virtual machines for developing.
What kind of CPU are you intending to have in it? I've been considering doing a OpenSUSE kvm host hosting a pci passthrough windows VM for gaymen. But my 6 core intel CPU doesn't really cut it when I have to dedicate 2 cores to the host. I'm considering buying an Intel EE with 8 cores but that one is just too expensive to justify at the moment. And the server processors with 12 cores and more are just clocked too low.
>tfw using Maya alone for one of my projects uses up 5gb of my 16gb

>too poor to buy more right now
at least it's ddr4
yeah man.... buy more of this sick gamer ram!!! remember to play your video games go- uh, guy!total used free shared buff/cache available

I got 16GB of ram in my last build; no regrets. Next build will be 32GB, because why the fuck not. Looking forward to 3DXPoint shenanigans in the near future.
And to all the people wondering why Windows is eating all your ram, it's because Windows uses something called Superfetch, it fills up a percentage of your ram with cached shit to make things run faster. I almost never see my ram usage dip below 25%.
Oh god, too many people here who wasted money on buying RAM they didn't need.
If you don't know how much RAM you need, then just get 8GB. If you needed more, you'd know how much to get because at that point you have some really specific use case that doesn't apply to anyone but you.
what are you drawing?
i'm drawing a house in my windows vm (system has 20G ram, VM currently set to 6GB)
>Start drawing/animating in Photoshop.
>Instantly feel like a RAMlet.
This isn't true, because the OS behaves a different way when less free RAM is available. For example with Android it force closes programs to free up RAM that is needed. This is as you say, but it makes for a horrible user experience. Windows will warn when this condition is happening.
>Not running ECC RAM
Enjoy your filesystem slowly corrupting itself one bitflip at at time, you probably don't even run ZFS you filthy Windows gaymer pleb
