How much RAM for 24 mpixel files?

I think I'll buy the new Nikon D600 (sensor Sony of 24 megapixel) ...or maybe the Nikon D800 (36 megapixel), but probably I think I'll buy D600

So with the size of these files (large file size!) what's the minimum RAM reccomended in your opinion?

I have a new pc (windows 7 home premium 64 bit) with 8 GB RAM and now, with my reflex (10 megapixel files), my pc works great

but with 24mpixel files, is it better if I buy another RAM? (I read it is better to install identical RAM and I'm afraid the same RAM I currently have is no longer available next months ...for this reason I ask you if is it better to install another RAM -for example 16 GB- so, if you reccomend me another RAM, I'll buy the exact same RAM I currently have)

thanks!
