How much RAM do you use?
« on: October 15, 2020, 11:19 »
So, what did the crowd pickup on the amazon prime day?

I picked up 32 GB for a 100 bucks. A bit tough on the strained budgets that corona has pushed upon many but I needed for 4k video editing as my 16gb was running at 90% with all my other stuff open :D

Was wondering how much max RAM are people using these days ;)

The server has 16Gb - and with all the servers running...it's using 2Gb!

My PC has 16Gb too. With Zoom meeting running and full work setup and loads of browser windows open it's using 5.6Gb.

I guess video editing will use any resources you throw at it!

Thanks for sharing :) 5.6gb usage is very nice. I think my browsers are using up too much RAM space. I manage multiple projects and each project needs user logins to test stuff. So, I have 5-6 different browsers open with many many tabs in each with different users logged in for multiple projects lol. Plus 1 have a 4k tv as a second screen if needed. So , all in all, my setup was eating up the RAM after days of uptime and the deal last night was just ok :) I will get it tomorrow. Opening up the machine will need careful hands to not damage the plastic lol. Yeah I love the design of this baby :D

I'm using 32 at the moment, only because I've hijacked my missus ram till I get the rest of the parts for her upgrade.
16 is what I normally run and seems fine on windows 10.

24gb, I edit in after effects, vegas, etc, several tabs open without problem
I use a very good extension to save memory: Great Suspender
it will inactivate Google Chrome tabs after a period of inactivity and you will save a lot of memory if you are like me (30 tabs always open)

Nice guys :)

 Wow SUP :) your top the charts with RAM. Kops seems more like me. Always multitasking and open for days :)

Thanks a ton Sup for the chrome extension. Indeed  chrome was taking up all the RAM as I have tons open like you. Will use it right away :)

Regarding a new gaming pc, try getting from USA. The tech is always newer and better for the best prices. I wish my gf would gift me her RAM stealer but she uses mac which has soldered ram ;)

Currently sitting at 16gb for some gaming and audio production, but I may need to think about upgrading soon... some programs and games are starting to struggle and I've had as much as a 20GB paging file in recent weeks...

after testing 32gb, i highly recommend to everyone who can afford a 100 bucks. i will sell 16 for 60 and effectively will upgrade for 40 or tad more ;)

The RAM price is as low as it was 4 years ago. I'd say upgrade system when you can/need.
