I am not sure what your usage habits are, but I do a lot of video editing with motion graphics on my PC rig. Only rarely have I actually had Windows/Adobe tell me that I was running low on RAM due to intense usage (scrubbing and quick rendering, I would regain more free RAM if i just waited a few seconds).Why only 8gb ?
The RAM you linked is DDR3 1333 :\ Why go down when the base is already at 1600.16GB at a nice price (it's been on sale for $60 once or twice in the past).
At these prices, why not?
(Seriously, though, there are lots of reasons - VMs, photo/video editing, routinely having 100s of tabs open in Chrome or Safari....)
Sorry about linking the slower speed RAM (didn't realize it). Probably won't be a noticeable speed difference, though.The RAM you linked is DDR3 1333 :\ Why go down when the base is already at 1600.
Alright, i guess you're right, RAM is incredibly cheap. But i'd use the extra $$ and put it towards an SSD. You'd see a huge increase in speed with that.
