Will 32 GB be future proof enough

Recommended Posts

Well based off my current pc specs I’ve gotten to 19 so far but that’s with a shit ton of stuff open

 

I just don’t want to regret not getting it lol. I’m lazy. I don’t want to upgrade and upgrade 

Yeah it's more than enough like literally you still have 13gb's left and I don't find any reason to reccomend a 64gb for your current use.

Whether you decide you need 32gb or 64gb in your system, please, for the love of God, don't go paying an extra $400 for an extra 32gb of RAM. That's a complete rip-off.

If you want to upgrade your RAM capacity then just buy it yourself and spend the 10 seconds it takes to pop it into place. You'll save a lot of money.

Cause I have 32 GB VENGENCE but I can upgrade to 64 but if it’s pointless then I can use the $500 towards other shit 

No reason AT ALL to get 64GB. Super overkill, unless you are doing 4K video editing, or working on extremely large files.


For your usage: 32GB is already overkill.

I don’t know if 32Gb Will be “enough” for future proofing ... I know I’ve asked before but I keep getting told 64 GB is the better way to go. Then people say 32 GB is overkill and 64 is x2 the amount of overkill....

 

 

Who says you need 64GB? Literally nobody I have seen so far.

 

RAM is one of the easiest things to upgrade later on anyway. So save your money now. And 10 years from now, when people MAYBE use 64GB of RAM, upgrade then. But by then you probably have two new computers already.. so yeah...

 

If you really have money burning a hole in your pocket (which you clearly do, with that system and these questions) get a second 2080Ti.

So my main uses are school, and gaming, some YouTube video and light editing. 

 

I have a 2080 RTX TI, i9 9900k, — 

 

Schooling usually has me with Microsoft word, and maybe 10-20 windows open for IE, google chrome.

im fucking perplexed as to what I do.

 

 

16 GB is totally fine 32 GB is overkill

 

go with 32 gb if you dont care about wasting a bit of money

Have you ever topped like 12..?

 

Most games use 5-6GB realistically, with some heavier titles getting up over 8 or so. 

 

Really 16 is a gaming PC. 32 is for heavy production purposes. 

Yes I use Cakewalk by BandLab DAW.  I love my 64GB in quad channel and what not.  But ya a future proof is not the right thing to say.  There are people here like me who run a DAW or run professional video editing 4k 2 hour movies then yes 32GB would be nice.  But all you do is play games and standard pc stuff.  16GB is the sweet spot.  Unless you want to run a sh*T load of Virtual Machines.

That falls into the heavy production category as stated above lol.

If you have to ask, you don't need 64GB. You probably don't even need 32GB.

this is the answer


Sorry about my spelling sometimes. My $1200 laptop has a $2 keyboard.

You'll be fine with 32gb as long as you're not going overboard to the extreme.

Like Aftereffects and sony vegas pro for 4k videos and heavy blender usage
