I'd normally tell someone to get 16 GB for this workload. 8 GB is probably usable if you only hit your max load situation rarely, and don't mind a little bit of slowdown. The one thing that might make a difference in your case is that you say you change computers often. An 8 GB machine might be a little harder to resell, it's good enough for casual usage though.Looking for some genuine input from others here because it seems every thread I read about RAM paints 8GB as a devilish decision.
