8gb DDR3 2133mhz

8GB here, last of the DDR2!

8GB of DDR1333 in my bubby home server.

I've always wondered why they're making crazy-fast DDR3 RAM - like the 2133MHz...what processors actually support it? The new IB i7's only seem to have 1600MHz support. I'm clearly missing something but...

m

Edit: I occasionally bump over 4GB of usage here and there (a little bit of handbreak encoding every now and then)...for the tiny cost of RAM these days, I like to have just that little bit more.

Mine supports it, Asus P9X79 Motherboard with i7 3820 :)

I have 16GB but I still wanna push for 32GB because RAM is so cheap!

16GB DDR3 1600MHz. I originally had 8GB, but experienced a tiny crash when I ran 8 VMs and ran out of memory :-)

8GB, never really use over 4GB but when I need VM's I ran into small delays on 4GB.

The only thing I would do if i had lots of RAM (and I do even with 8) is chop the pagefile down to 1 or 2 GB.

4GB DDR2-1066MHz here can't justify going higher with expensive DDR2 so will wait till I build a new PC for DDR3 which at this point in time is a third of the price of DDR2 here I can get 8GB for the same cost of 1x2GB stick of DDR2 so yeah couple of months to go before a new build not that I have any probs running the game I play now on what I have

Phenom II x4 940 @ 3400MHz, 4GB DDR2-1066MHz, 2x Samsung F1 512GB HDD's in raid0, 2x HIS Radeon HD5770 1GB's in CF

My laptop is 4 years old now and has had 4GB since I first got it. When I buy a new laptop next year I will go for as much as is possible to put in it as RAM is dirt cheap :)

6GB. Computer is a couple of years old now. Never really go above 50% during intensive workloads. So don't see the point of getting anymore even though it is dirt cheap.

Since last week, dirt cheap 4 x 4 GB @ 1600 CL9 KHX Red. Now using it for ramdisk, because I can't afford a decent SSD. For that sole purpose I'd stuff more, too, except that old, aging P55 wouldn't let me. Sold 4 x 2 GB @ 1333 CL6 G.Skill "Because I Can" sticks so that effectively this upgrade cost me nothing but an speed bump of 2.26 ns access time and stuff.

Hackintosh at work 32Gb

VM Server at work 20Gb

Home Media Center 8Gb

The hackintosh is overkill, but DDR3 is so cheap I figured it's better to have too much than not enough.

What motherboard do you use? I assume it's a dual socket. I really wish mine had more than 4 DIMM slots :-/

I use Windows as my host OS but run linux in a VM. I develop on both platforms. The main reason I need the RAM is because I work with some very large databases and I want most of the data loaded in memory rather than read from/written to my SSD

Intel DX79SI.

Just curious but what do you do with it? Hard to imagine most of that not sitting unused and wasted.

Lots of VMware virtual servers testing.

There are desktop motherboards that support 128GB of RAM, like the MSI Big Bang II. :)

16GB - 4x4GB DDR-III 1600MHz

I seem some of you say no paging file... Since I use Adobe Photoshop - It requires a paging file so I have mine set at 128MB

4 GB DDR2. Yeah, my PC is kinda old. I'll probably be upgrading some things come the new year.
