Honestly, for most users 24-28GB is going to be the largest they can/should make. After that it becomes rather academic. Most consumer grade mobo's ram support maxes out - at this time - @ 32GB. Take away 8GB for the OS and you get 24GB, push it down to 4GB for the OS (not a good idea) and you get 28GB.

Now with that said...there is nothing to say you cant use a 2P mobo or server grade mobo with DOUBLE (or more) the ram slots (....and headaches) and then make a monster RamDisk....thus the 64GB limit.

BUT unless you have a 2P mobo or have uber expensive ram and a mobo with 64GB ram support...its a non-issue.
