I may change my motherboard, cpu, and RAM soon, but probably not the power supply. I've seen a few games list 16GB RAM in recommended specs now, and who knows, maybe consoles like Scorpio will have that. Is it a better idea to go with 32GB to ensure a 4-5 year life span?

Recommended doesn't mean it's necessary. I would say if you're running an amd apu more ram would certainly help frame rates. I have 16 gb ram and I haven't seen any problems in any games. might I ask what games you're referring to?

The seasonic snow edition would go so well with my white theme built but at 100+ still too rich for me .Oh well thanks OP for letting me know that such PSU even exists.

I'm pretty sure that's the lowest price yet on the Corsair CX450/550M units. Those are highly-underrated units for the price:

Thanks, as always, TD for the great deals! TU , tried to Rep, but wouldn't allow me to. I got the targeted email code yesterday, and was trying to decide which PSU to buy. Thanks to OCnewbie, and information they posted, I am able to make better decision now.

I've rarely seen my PC go above 8GB worth of RAM usage, and when it does, it's because the PC doesn't have to prioritize the capacity as much, so it can keep stuff in the RAM that isn't necessarily being used as long as there's still plenty of reserve...

Unless you run virtual machines or run and use a ton of programs simultaneously, more than 16GB isn't necessary, and could actually slightly slow your PC down if you don't need it...

The fewer number of DIMMs makes it an easier job for the memory controller. If you have 4 DIMM slots for a 2 channel memory architecture (what most processors these days have) then that means there are Two DIMM slots per channel... Unless you use over 16GB of memory, 16GB (2 x 8GB, one DIMM for each channel) would work slightly better than 32GB (4 x 8GB, two DIMMs for each channel)

There are reports out there discussing this problem and how it relates to server performance, and the pros and cons to populating every slot and slowing down performance VS the capacity limitations of only using one DIMM per channel. The result says basically that if you actually NEED more RAM, then fill it up... If you don't need the maximum capacity, then use one DIMM per channel...

Of course you can get 16GB DIMMs, and be able to have 32GB within 2 slots, but that tends to be very pricy... It wouldn't affect performance, but still wouldn't be needed for gaming.

I just have 2 of my 4 slots populated... 16GB total, and should I ever need to go to 32GB, I still have the other two slots... I honestly don't see that happening within the lifetime of my PC though. If I start doing serious photo editing, running several virtual machines, or something more taxing on the RAM, I might get more... Or I would likely build another machine with a Xeon processor more apt for doing that sort of work...

Gaming just doesn't/won't need enough RAM to bother with any more than 16...

The model numbers in that article don't line up with the model numbers of the units in the OP.

Yes, as long as it's the 450, 550, or 650 watt models with the 5-year warranty.

What are you referring to, the "RPS0027" and other numbers?

Yes. When I enter the model numbers from the article into the Newegg search nothing comes up.
