I would say might as well go 16GB now while memory is cheap. I upgraded because I figured RAM isn't going to get much cheaper, but it will get more expensive as it gets older. Max out while you still can! :)

My thoughts exactly. Im planning to build my parents a new computer rig in the next few months and had a chance to get 16GB Corsair Dominator (this one exactly: - CORSAIR Vengeance 16GB (4 x 4GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) Desktop Memory Model CMZ16GX3M4A1600C9 ) $95 shipped to my door.

So ill give them the 8GB G. Skill thats currently on my rig and use the corsair on mine. Personally, this is a good time to buy ram very cheap.
Gaming Rig:
