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 personal desktop has 16, throughout the house it varies from 512MB (very old XP based UMPC) to 8GB, a couple of servers ranging from 8 to 32.

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.
