    I have 16gb of DDR3, currently 2x8gb, would go to 32gb except my CPU cooler is obstructing one slot.

    16gb currently is plenty for desktop use. Few programs will take advantage of more ram. My attitude is simple; why not? I'd have enough to fiddle around with a ram drive then.

    Think I might need another 8gig in my recently purchased notebook.

    Looks like it will drain about 57 us dollars out of my wallet to get to 16 gig.
    Heck I'm still not sure what RAM actually does 🤓

    Basically it's a buffer for storing information in order to help reduce bottlenecks.

    SSD's/HDD's are the solution to very large storage, but they're comparatively slow to RAM. Ram is much faster, so information that will need to be processed, or if space permits, might be processed, gets stored there.

    The advantage of more ram, to a point is that your PC will basically be able to bite off more to chew at a time, without having to go back to the SSD/HDD for more data. Going to the HDD/SSD is slow by comparison.
