I wont ask why ... but 16gb RAM is normally only needed with very heavy multi tasking or say a Ramdisk.

Ramdisk is a good idea though.

this is true ripsaw memory is another great memory and has it's own heat sink which is a great idea but again I use myself crucial memory and it has been about for longer that I am awear.

Well for my comp I usually have 1 game running, 1 browser, iTunes , and some other stuff. 16 gb is enough for it unless I have a few other adobe programs idling.

I'm running 16GB and for me it's mostly overkill until I start running my hypervisors. Get 2 or 3 of those running and RAM usage skyrockets.

Sorry, thats me again But I looked at 650Ti, and I would get 2 of them In my system for the same price, I mean, yes you told me that SLI is not needed in my case, but I was just wondering if 2 650Ti's would make any difference in performace (Heat, FPS in games, Boot time, etc.)

Yea, but what do you mean by yours Hypervisors? Like, what are you doing when you run 3 of them? Im kinda curious, because most of my RAM is being consumed by games, that run Java. Mostly when I play TF2 (I like it on best settings) with my firends
