8 GB on windows 7. thinking abut upgrade, but not sure should i upgrade to 32 GB directly or try the 16 GB first.

Hi Shakib,
I don’t know what sort of development you’re doing and the capabilities of your mainboard (max GBs of ram each slot supports) , anyway , I think we’re pushed to use more powerful hardware than we really need to by strong advertisement campaigns and shiny brochures.
I think 32 gb of ram will be a true waste of money.

I guess I will have to destroy you all.. 92GB ;)

EDIT : It’s a workstation, which I use for motion graphics, CGI and most importantly, simulations. Whoever does not render complex imagery, runs simulations or requires extremely heavy programs (video, audio and programming), going over 16GB is nonsense.

IMHO 32 is overkill – for now, maybe after 2 years it’s the right capacity, but then, it will be ridiculously cheaper, so why get them now, this is my opinion.

For me 16GB is already a plenty measuring to my heavy multitasking including 2 VMs running beside my normal work applications and internet browser with a dozen of tabs opened, there will be at least 5GB free of these – I think.

The funniest part is, I still cannot grab the 16GB, every time I go to buy them, they are sold out! :D
