So, I am using this until the new Intel and Nvidia offerings come out. 

CPU AMD FX-6300 3.5GHz 6-Core $94.89 CPU Cooler Cooler Master Hyper 212 EVO 82.9 CFM Sleeve Bearing $28.98 Motherboard Gigabyte GA-78LMT-S2 Micro ATX AM3+ $142.86 Memory G.Skill Value Series 4GB (1 x 4GB) DDR3-1333 $33.99   Kingston Fury Series 4GB (1 x 4GB) DDR3-1333 $35.99 Storage Seagate 1TB 2.5" 5400RPM Hybrid $80.98 Video Card MSI GeForce GTX 960 2GB $209.99 Case Fractal Design Define R4 (Black Pearl) ATX Mid Tower $99.75 Power Supply EVGA 430W ATX12V / EPS12V $19.99 Optical Drive LG GH24NSC0 DVD/CD Writer

$14.99

I was getting 100% RAM usage and Windows was really lagging a lot. Should I get a new motherboard with more RAM? Also note that this used to be my secondary PC and that I spend $300 on the Kingston RAM, EVGA PSU (old one died), 212 EVO, and GTX 960. I am willing to spend more if I need to but not if I don't have to. Thanks.

8gb should be more than enough i think theres only 1 or 2 games that can use more, what were you doing to get 100% usage in ram? might have a memory leak somewhere

cpu:i7-4770k    gpu: msi reference r9 290x  liquid cooled with h55 and hg10 a1     motherboard:z97x gaming 5   ram:gskill sniper 8 gb

Is your system detecting 8GB?

 

 

8GB ram should really be enough. What are you running?

You should probably run a malware scan.

It was detected in CPU-Z and CAM. I Need to run Photoshop, Vegas, and AE at the same time for the way I edit. Just no other way to efficiently get things done. I thought 8GB would be enough, too. I had 16GB on the system that I just sold (still in my profile) so that may be why I am used to running all 3. Just not sure how 8GB is not enough for that, really.

Yeah I can imagine 8gb filling up quickly if you run all of those at once :P

Desktop:     Core i7-9700K @ 5.1GHz = ASRock Z390 Taichi Ultimate = 16GB HyperX Predator DDR4 @ 3600MHz = EVGA GTX 1070 FTW = Samsung 970 EVO 500GB M.2 SSD = ASUS PG279Q

 

Notebook:  Clevo P651RG-G = Core i7 6820HK = 16GB HyperX Impact DDR4 2133MHz = GTX 980M = 1080p IPS with G-Sync = Samsung SM951 256GB M.2 SSD + Samsung 850 Pro 256GB SSD

So I guess I have no option but to spend another $130 on an MSI 970 Gaming and a 4GB stick of RAM?

Or 2 8gb sticks I guess. All I can say is if you're wanting to run software like that, definitely if you want to run it all at once, you'll eventually have to invest in a proper workstation. I find myself filling up 16gb quite easily when I run gimp and blender at the same time :P

I had a proper workstation (i7 3820 16GB GTX 970) but I sold it so I could have money to get Skylake and the new Nvidia processors. I just had to upgrade my secondary a little bit.

Ouch, guess you'll be sitting on that money for a little while longer. Skylake isn't coming to the desktop anytime soon :P If you're going for a high end chip that is

24GB is a good number... In the middle of 16 and 32. It's a shame more people don't use it!

Triple channel or something else?

In my sig: 2x4 and 2x8.

Only have the 2x8 because of incorrect memory support listings from before.

 

And the 2x4 is actually part of a 4x4 kit.

Sig under construction.

Does any RAM with the same speed and is compatible with the motherboard work together?

I'll say this:

2,5-4min of video in real time rendering in Vegas, and you have 2-2,5GB taken away from you by just one program ^ ^
