Monster Memory

Recommended Posts

Hi all, I'm planning my next build. I only have room for one PC, and it will be a server for running ERP and CRM systems at home (for Dev and setup work) cause that's my job and its much better having your own instances running to hack on. I will also play the odd game, write long documents, surf the web, convert video formats.


As its pretty cheap, I'm thinking of maxing out to 32gb or even 64gb (on a 2011 mb), just to make it future proof and because I use 8gb easily now.


Question is does having this much memory, as good as it is for running multiple VM's, slow down the PC in other tasks? I know it takes longer to start up, is there anything else to consider?


Anyone else run monster amounts of ram?

extra ram wont slow it down although it can restrict overclocks

for a start i would just fill half the available slots with 8gb sticks then you can always add more if you need it
