    When it comes to RAM, do you need 4GB or 8GB? That is the question.
    RAM is an important factor when buying a new PC, but not everyone needs lots of it. The standard for what is acceptable for RAM has been on the rise for years, with 2GB RAM being more than fine in mid-2005. In 2018, things are very different.
    Some argue that these days, even 4GB of RAM isn't enough for general computing. Those people say a minimum of 8GB RAM should be the standard in all PCs if you want to do any kind of computing at a reasonable pace. Do you agree?

    Right now, I have 6 tabs open in Chrome (1 of which is a YouTube video, 1 is Hangouts), another IM app, and the Task manager. I am at 4.5 GB of RAM. I honestly think 4 is the bare minimum for Windows these days. I would say anything above 4 would be good for many users.
