1 GB - Outdated. 2 GB - School systems. 4 GB - Web browsing and everyday use. 8 GB - Casual Gaming 16 GB - Gaming 32 GB - Future-proof Gaming 64 GB - For sure streaming and editing, etc. 128 - You will not need to upgrade anymore for now on.

I don't think anyone should buy a computer with less than 8 GB of RAM, 16 is fine for most games, the only game I have that will go over 16 GB is Cities Skylines.

64GB is plenty for me my mobo can handle 128GB, I use my PC for music production and occasionally gaming, mostly work related software, DAWS require some good amount of RAM. I think 23GB and 64GB will be the norm in the next 10 years.

16GB ram is enough for most but job related like expensive, subscription required movie editing applications require at least 32GB Ram but Ram alone won't do without updated core and maybe a graphic card to throw in if you fancy for more.

You caught the sanitiser bottle before you sanitised your hands and you didn't sanitise the bottle, so you gave things from your hands to the other guy when you threw it to him...

He did say that on a over the air interview in 1981. I remember him saying it and agreed with him at the time. However! Gates was not talking about RAM as a whole in a set but just the conventional ram. Dos had conventional memory maxed at 640k which was handled by the kernel. The rest of the ram was placed in what was called high memory and was handled by a system file named HIMEM.SYS up to 1MB and the rest used Extended memory managed by emms386.sys. So in 1981 a 1mb SRAM with 640k of it as conventional was indeed correct. that no one would ever need more for extended memory easily handled the rest. Yes, I am one of the original gamers. I am in my mid 40's. old now. Here it what is looked like.

I have been making computers for over 25 Years and 3 programs take advantage of RAM Adobe Premiere, After Effects, and Resolve. I have 3 Computers with 256 GB Ram that serve me well. I can do more with the machines while rendering. I had a video editing project that was a 360 Degree Tour it took 18 hours to render even with 256 GB of Ram and another unit for the same project with 128GB Ram which took about the same amount of time. Linus, you are right, but I am just a Tech Guy who likes equipment. Thanks for the memory refresher . . .

He is correct. Think of it this way, 4 GB ram systems will do you good with 32-bit os and 8 GB Ram for 64-bit ram. I never really needed more than that and you have to be an idiot trying to fill up 16 GB ram by have way too many programs open at once, that is just stupid!
TryHardCentral Prieš 12 dienų
Recently upgraded from single 8gb to 2x 8gb of ram. I think for gaming nowadays you should have at least 12 gb of ram.

Hi, I am working on installing windows (7 and/or10) on an Acer laptop. I keep getting the blue screen and something about memory management. I checked my RAM. The laptop will power on with the 2 x 2gb ram sticks in but four nothing with any 1 sticks in any ram slot. White can I do at this point? I'm baffled.

That's because google is data mining your pc and sending all the data off a million times a second. Like Google says we have everything we need to know about you. We know what you will do next or rather we will social engineer you to follow marketing routes to either make us money or provide us with more personal behaviour data. Google now directs your browsing behaviour, you are controlled, Google decides where and what pages you will be displayed with, not you.
