Getting Ready To Build The New PC

Is it a 2 or 3 channels chipset? The 3rd channel doesn't get you THAT much but if it's there might as well use it, otherwise ... 8 or 16.

 

I went 24 at home because it was either 12 or ... 24, and i knew that 12 wasn't quite enough to run all those VMs from using a 12gb system in the office. At home my working size turned out to be around 14 or 15 GB, so I was confirmed as to (1) why my system in the office felt small and (2) I knew I could get by just fine with a 16gb notebook.

 

Most people will have very little use for anywhere near that amount of memory.

 

But it is cheap.

 

EDIT:

 

Each VM gets allocated between 1-2 GB so that's what I really "use" on a per machine basis. I just have the equiv. of 5 machines running on one notebook hardware.

 

i've been looking at some of the quad channel stuff

Back in October my video card gave up and I almost got another computer but decided to wait. Here is what I was thinking of buying a few months ago from PC Express near SM:   processor:

oh and the overkill is for two reasons yeah i game and i like to have all the settings maxed out.. and i now want to do that on my 60 inch tv   my brother gave me Skyrim for Christmas .. i've played

Yeah gfx cards are so cheap now..... I used to buy cards for my work that were more than the rest of the machine but now I just get the latest mid high end gaming card..... And yes the ssd card say 5

Do your self a favor, get a solid state drive as a system disc . I use a 60 gig and man am I happy, boots xp like nobody's business, Open office opens in 2 sec just remember to check system tools and off automatic De fragmentation of it....

Then 12 not really an option, if you go that route?

 

I'd go whatever the next increment above 8 is that will fit in your MB, 6 or 8 would probably be enough, almost for sure, but this isn't a system that's about "just enough", sounds like to me, so yeah, either 12 or 16.
