Re: New computer build
I'm certainly going for 16 Gb RAM. My build has a water cooling system, which I have never had before. I would like to give that a try.

Need and want are two different things. Did you ever buy a car with exactly as much horsepower as you generally need? 42 bucks for double RAM is worth it IMO. This is a fun build. If 8Gb sticks were affordable, there would be 4 of those instead.
