IT for broke people? How about not spending money when it is not needed? Or are you in the habit of spending money when it is not needed. I am about the numbers...pure and simple. Get as much done with as small an expenditure as possible. Usually a mandate with ANY IT shop. Show me a business that wants ANY of its money to be spent without a reason or benefit and I will show you a business that is on its way to not being a business.

I own DSLR camera equipment. Everyone who does is in the habit of spending money when it is not needed. My computer build from 2 years ago has 12 gigs. I'm not really interested in going BACKWARDS with your recommendations of 8 gigs. This is 2013, the minimum now is 16, and the recommended is 32, and I'm going for 64.

Not everyone does. I JUST finally broke down and got a D800....and only because of the extra pixels for my monster prints for my customers. No one said go backwards...I said 8 gigs is the sweet spot and my benchmarking is proof of that. If you have 16 gigs...by all means...keep it. No one is mandating ANYTHING to you....so you need to chill out. If you want to waste your money on 32 gigs....have at it. Currently I dont know of a MoBo or Processer that will handle 64...so good luck with that.

Just look up Asus motherboards (they have the best documentation anyway), and then Intel 2011 (that's the pin count, not the year); and you'll see that they have *SEVERAL* motherboards capable of 64GB.
You know for someone supposedly in IT, you don't know Jack (<-- actually a tech reference, not that I expect you to get anything and why I'm spelling it all out for you so you don't think I'm talking about something from 2 years ago or high on coffee or something... I'm doing my best to K.I.S.S. for you).

No need to wear your ass hat...oh...too late!!!

Your on ignore. (I can find that feature.....because I am in IT....lol)

Have a nice day!
