also, my iMac pro is at 32g ram, and I dont think ive come close to needing it. so 64 may just be wasted money? I dont do video tho

Most people don't need 64GB. A few users working with large numbers of large Photoshop files can use more, like the guy who runs the Mac Performance Guide website...

Why I NEED 80GB or 96GB Memory in my Mac Pro

My needs are met at 32GB and it's even OK on my 16GB MacBook Pro. If I got a new Mac I would probably stay at 32GB.

But the same guy makes some more recent arguments for 64GB that sound good

Memory: It’s Great to Have 64GB in the iMac 5K

I guess, if you have the money, 64GB is a good place to be, but if you don't have the money, 32GB is high enough to keep you out of most memory bottleneck situations (VM swapping, RAM compression...).
