For a build like that, 16gb would be preferable.
16 is good if u have it at a nice 2400 mhz
in my fantasy gaming build i had 64 gb of 3000mhz ram
minimum 8gb, but 16gb is ideal.
for speed, you want the fastest stuff you can get without paying a high premium for it... if you can get 3000mhz for almost the price of 2133mhz, that's awesome, but if you have to pay $20 more, then don't bother.
8GB Minimum, but if you want to get the best performance you should be safe and get 16GBs
Bottom line : 4
Minimum : 6
Skimpy : 8
Reccomended by me : 16
Thanks people for you wisdom and insights . I think I'll stay with 32GB and maybe drop the frequency to 3000 MHz . I was wondering if a 4x4 kit would be better ? If I stay with 2x16 I could always upgrade with another like kit , and make it 4x16 = 64GB later down the road ! ! ! Maybe I should go with 16GB , I'll have to think on this . If it's better for gaming , that my main thing .
32 gigs is overkill, unless you do some HEAVY *** rendering or video edits.
4x4 usually looks better, but that is subject to opinion
4 will limit you severely. As in, everything you play will have to be on the lowest quality possible, and even then you won't be able to play the majority of games.
Thats why i put it as a bottom line.
8 gigs is fine for most things, but 16 is preferable.
32gb is excessive, but now its getting to the point that 16gb is well within reason as some games will just chew up 8gb, especially if streaming or multitasking...
Judging by the price of this PC, 16gb would help with the longevity and for streaming/multitasking.
