People said you wouldn't need 4GB to play games back in 2006-7, but those that thought ahead and bought 4GB when it was cheap in 2007 didn't need to buy more ram for 4 years. The people who said not to buy 4GB, because it is a waste, later had to pay more per GB than those that bought in 2007.

Long story short:
Buy 16GB, won't need to upgrade for 4 years, DDR4 will be the norm.
Buy 8GB, need to upgrade in 2 years, pay $20 more. (actually probably more than that)
