bob16314You can see your Current/Min/Max/Avg System Memory usage with HWiNFO (Free) in the Sensor -> System part.Leave it run minimized and running in the background while you go about gaming and doing whatever else you do on your PC..Then check it.Unused memory is wasted memory and adding more when not needed will do nothing except cost you money..You probably don't even need anywhere near your current 32GB.You can also check your Current/Min/Max/Avg GPU Memory in %..Or use EVGA Precision or MSI Afterburner for Min/Max too..MSI Afterburner will track both System Memory (shown as RAM usage, MB) usage and GPU Memory (shown as Memory usage, MB) usage..Precision only tracks GPU Memory usage.

Cool GTX16GB is the sweet spot for most PC. 32GB for those that need the extra RAM & can use it 64GB for anyone Not using professional software that can actually take advantage of it ... is a waste of money
GTXJackBauerI run a triple screen zoo here with apps running up the wazoo w/ 25+ tabs. When gaming in BFV, I didn't realize I was chocking my PC RAM with only 16 GBs (2400). Upgraded to 32GB (3200) and saw a jump in usage to almost 20 GB which tells me I was holding my machine back. Feels more fluid now than before. In the end, it all depends what your configuration is set as and what you're running. Just for gaming, 16 GB should do you fine but 32 GB if you're looking to expand. 64 GB would be more for content creators, etc.
aka_STEVE_bI have read many articles testing out the scenarios of ram usage. .. and the general consensus was that 16 gigs is optimum for gaming for 90% of PC users. 32 was for if you run production software/ video editing,/ photography/ ..etc... on up to 64 for hardcore Developers & up.
