Ram

For what purpose? Generally speaking 16gb is still absolutely fine for 99% of the people including gamers. So is there anything that you are hoping to gain? For example are you running tasks where you think your pc could do with a bit more ram? If that is the case you can easily monitor it. 

 

tl;dr likely not, but it depends on your use case.

More ram is useful to those who need more ram.

 

But if you only use 16GB or less, you won't benefit from more memory capacity.

 

I WILL find your ITX build thread, and I WILL recommend the SIlverstone Sugo SG13B

 

Primary PC:

i7 8086k (won) - EVGA Z370 Classified K - G.Skill Trident Z RGB - WD SN750 - Jedi Order Titan Xp - Hyper 212 Black (with RGB Riing flair) - EVGA G3 650W - dual booting Windows 10 and Linux - Black and green theme, Razer brainwashed me.

Draws 400 watts under max load, for reference.

 

Linux Proliant ML150 G6:

Dual Xeon X5560 - 24GB ECC DDR3 - GTX 750 TI - old Seagate 1.5TB HDD - dark mode Ubuntu (and Win7, cuz why not)

 

How many watts do I need? Seasonic Focus thread, PSU misconceptions, protections explainedgroup reg is bad

This topic has been hotly debated - if you listen to a certain YouTuber (tech deals) he will tell you that the minimum is 32 GB. A few months ago I went to 32 from 16 and noticed no difference at all. Adding more RAM when you are not using what you already have makes zero difference. 
Unless of course you have a specific use for more RAM but if it’s just for gaming then 16 GB is probably enough.

Check your memory use in task manager when doing various things. If you're rarely close to full, no point. If it often is then yes probably worth it.
