Only if you're running a high end NASA type server and maybe not even then. 8 gigs will do fine for most high end systems. Even if you're gaming.
Just look for high quality matched sets under a leading brand name. Shop around. Read reviews. Do your homework first then buy.

I have to agree 8GB will do find. I have 16GB and only once seen it go above 8 GB and that was when I had 3 heavy games and a virus scanner running.

8GB will be more then enough. So go with that, get 8gb G-skill DDR 2 or 3?
