6GB 1600Mhz DDR3 G.Skill Ripjaws in my gaming computer, 4GB 1066Mhz DDR2 in my HTPC, and 8GB 1333Mhz DDR3 in my laptop

Gaming PC: i7 [email protected], Noctua NH-U12P SE2, ASUS P6X58D-E, 2x Sapphire 2GB HD6970s in Crossfire, 12GB 1600Mhz G.Skill Ripjaws, 160GB OCZ Vertex 2 SSD, 3x Samsung 1TB F3, 1x Samsung 2TB F4, Corsair 650D, Corsair AX-850.


12GB of fast corsair ddr3, cost me like $200


8gb+ because the low pricing. And why not overconsume now than later. :)


because it will not be too long until the next socket comes out and the older ram drops in price £80-100 is not really cheap for 4gb

Well this is a sad story xD My desktop broke about 15 months ago and I haven't got enough cash to buy a new one, so right now I am on an old Toshiba Equium laptop -.- With a whopping 512mb of DDR 444mhz RAM


2gb DDR2 but i want to upgrade to 8gb DDR3 at Christmas if i can justify the expenditure to switch to an X6

I have 4GB of DDR3 1600MHz RAM (running at 1066, but too lazy to change it in the BIOS) in my main computer. My secondary computer (my first build, which I keep around as a pseudo-HTPC in my bedroom to watch DVDs on) has 2GB of regular old DDR. I also use that computer to run XP, which allows me to run some older games I can't play on my main computer.

Just 1x2GB DDR3 Kingston @ 1333MHz. Yeah, I know, but I didn't have much money when I bought my PC, I probably going to upgrade to 4GB soon.

AMD Phenom II x4 945 @ 3GHz with a CM Hyper 212+, Sapphire HD 6850 @ 820MHz (core) & 1100MHz (memories), 4GB Kingston HyperX 1600 CL9, Thermaltake V3 Black Edition.

I almost bought 12gigs ddr3 because I am a programming student and 3d modeling students. And the more memory, CPU O.C, and GPU I have the faster things render and calculate for me. But 6gigs has done plenty for me thus far.

6gb (3x2gb) DDR3 1600 G.Skill PI series 7-8-7-24-2N


You can easily get under 100 dollar 2x4GB DDR3 kits nowadays. Pretty fantastic stuff, it's getting me motivated to replace my mobo and CPU with it.

4GB sticks are becoming cheaper... gotta get a 2 x 4GB DDR3 kit for my EVGA P55 FTW. Currently using 2 x 2 GB G.SKILL ECO DDR3 1600 (7-8-7-24 2T 1.35v). 4GB sticks are awesome - more memory and as for me, I'll get 8GB while only populating 2 out of 4 DIMM slots so I can keep my 4.2 GHz overclock on my i5 760.

I'm shocked to see that 4GB DDR3 is leading the poll. Lots of H55/P55 users and maybe some poor people stuck with 790i/X48/P45 motherboards.

I`ve got some old value DDR2 667Mhz modules :D


I have two systems right now: An old one and a new one.
In my old system (which I'm going to shut down forever in the next week) I'm using 2GB of DDR2 RAM. In my new rig I'm using 8GB of DDR3 memory of course since I selected the parts for that rig like a month ago.


I have 10000000gb worth of DDR4 RAM.
Naa i'm kidding. I only have DDR3 4GB worth. I don't see the need of having so many memory. i do alot of gaming/multitasking etc but i guess this topic is debatable so i'll just leave it from here.

Do you really need more than 4GB???
I mean I don't play COD edit, a HD movie and browse the web at the same time.
What's the good side on having more memory?


I think it must be more for bragging rights. Much like a pickup truck someone would put bigger tires on. Only impressive if they use it.
I have only 2 gig ram in my system, I've never seen the usage go above 40%, and I multitask a whole lot.


I have 4GB of DDR2 memory that are rated at 800MHz, but I don't think they even get close to that speed. But I don't have a clue how to properly check or how to change it, so I live with it for now. :P

Looks like DDR3 and 4GB+ is winning, with DDR2 and 6GB following behind.

At the moment I only have 1gb of DDR 2 but I am building a system that will have OCZ 12GB (4x3) 1600


I have the best kit you can get,They made it for short time to Beat out the other 3X4Gb kits like the kingston 12GB. In only 3 sticks (3x4) Mushkin 998798 at a CAS 7 Latency! you can't get ram this fast anymore, it kicks the hell out of anything and everything including Higher clocked Dominator. The Latency is what matters most in DDR3. But I also have mine overclocked to 1800Mhz. The Sad thing is you can't even get this ram anymore on e-bay or anywhere, trust me I searched and NO one is giving it up! "the Chip is to hard,expensive and in rare supply, we are no longer able to get a hold of it, and it is not being produced anymore"(that's me quoting what Mushkin told me when I begged them for another 12Gb kit so i would have 24GB), and to this day, even Mushkins New ram that is the closest to replacing it, doesn't come close to beating it.


I Have 512GB of DDR4 Memory


3 GB DDR2 on a intel pentium IV :[ i wish I could afford an upgrade :{

6GB of DDR3 1866MHz OCZ triple channel RAM :)


10gb of DDR3,

I own 12gb, but I can only use 10...

I have two sets of three sticks (different brands and timings)

I can use 1 pair of each kind, and then one lone stick in the third channel. 3 channel boards pose a problem when upgrading, you have to have 3 matching pairs, which if you own three sticks now, one stick is the odd man out.

G. Skill 4Gb DDR2 1066MHz- 2x 2gb sticks, the ones with the blue heatsinks on Newegg. Got 'em when they were half the price now at $45. Hoping to drop and lock-in two more of the same for some 8Gb action. :D

4GB of Corsair XMS3 DDR3 1600MHz 9-9-9-24 1.65v. Sometimes I think people get all caught up into buying RAM. Yeah, if you don't have enough RAM getting more is pretty much the best bang-for-buck upgrade, but if you do have enough its pretty much a complete waste of money to buy more. For most people's uses (normal internet stuff, music/video, and gaming) 4GB is more than enough.
