Crucial doesnt ship to my country. i'll be getting the 27 inch version. Are there other options where i can buy 16gb (2x8) ram? i'm not good at looking for these things.

8 Gigs would be sufficient for many users. I've used 8 in my imac 2009 all the way, but it struggled with larges multilayer photoshop files (2gb+ files). SOme times I had shut down a lot of smaller programs, like sparrow, twitter etc...because I had to give everything to photoshop. Now, with 32 gb I dont need to worry. i can open the largest images I would ever use in addition to not caring what apps are open. So, it's convenience in addition to smoothness and not needing to worry - that for a cost of about 100Euros for the 32gb. So its way worth it...it's so cheap that maxing it out is an obvious choice.
