Elements/Premiere 10 - Technical Question RAM usage

Elements/Premiere 10 - Technical Question RAM usage

I have just been bought Elements/Premiere 10 for my birthday.

I currently use Elements 6, no Premiere.

I am getting a new laptop, 17.3” matte screen, quad core i7, SSD and a hybrid data drive, Windows 7 professional

I have the option of 16 or 32 GB of RAM (extra cost of course).

I will start to do a 'BIT' of video editing every now and again mainly of my grandson etc. Home movies not professional, just family viewing.

Will the Premiere 10 utilise all the RAM in my System or just read the video data into a set amount of RAM and fetch new data as it see appropriate?

Basically is it worth getting the extra 16 GB or RAM, will I see any performance improvements for video editting?

Would this question be better posted in the PC forum?
