I'm running 32 gigs and that is sufficient but run a few other programs at the same time...
Definitely a difference since before running 8 gigs!

Amen Joves.

Instead of buying a prebuilt "gaming/editing/beast" computer I have been custom building mine every 2 years. You'll save 30-40% and have the best hardware instead of the middle range hardware. Put 16, 32 as much as you can in it. Also, a solid state drive.

You should never see the "processing" bar unless you are photomerging or loading 1000 raws into bridge =)

Give her what she wants and she will purr. Imagine doing photoshop as fast as you can think it.

I have 12g on mine. It doesn't use it all but I can work with LR & PS at the same time and it doesn't slow down.
