When i first built my PC, i believed myself to have bought 2 sticks of 4 gig memory, giving me the general amount of RAM a gaming pc should have nowadays (8 gigs)
But, i didn't. I bought 2 x 2's, ending up with only 4. Which is really unacceptable for a modern day gaming pc.
So, having chatted with a friend about it, he found me a good deal on newegg for some 4 x 8's, totalling 32 gigs. Way over what a normal gaming pc would need, but at a great price/amount of ram you get. At home now, so dont have the link handy. I think it was around 100-150 bucks for them. Not important really.
So- How much is too much? Would my pc having to hunt through 32 gigs of random memory actually hurt it more than help it?
Is it better to have 4 sticks of smaller ram, or two sticks of bigger ram?( MB has 4 slots)
The stepping(or whatever its called) on my current ones are 8 8 8 24- Is this the standard we want nowadays/for my pc?
