Is it time to buy 16gb of memory?
Like all of you guys probably already know, memory is as cheap as it's ever been right now. Newegg recently had 16gb of DDR3 for around $62. When I see prices like that I start to get tempted, but like most of you probably as well, I don't need to be spending additional money without a good reason. Then I read an article here stating that memory prices are almost surely going up next year.
My question here is pretty simple. I plan on having my system for about 4 years. Is my current memory of 8gb good enough? I know right now it's more than adequate, and 10 years ago more memory was always better, but it just seems to me that for the last 5 years even 4gb gets you by quite nicely. I just wonder if 16gb of memory is still going to be a waste 4 years down the road.
