They must be pretty dumb "extreme gamers" if they think 24GB does anything for them above 6GB lol. Im pretty sure no game will be using that much memory for probably 10 years.

By Extreme Gamers they must be refering to those found playing multiple games of Crysis simultaneously while recording and rendering their latest FRAPS video.

Reminds me of a family friend who got an i7 920 with a GTX260, and 12gb of RAM so he can read his email and do online banking on a 56k connection...


Some people are easily attracted by large numbers even if they don't ever come close to using that... ever.

Just to browse on the internet LOOOOL i cant even think of that in my own system and im an enthusiast with crappy specs
