How much RAM should i get?

Hello, im getting a new pc system, with this specs:
Intel 4790 4GH
nvidia GTX 980 FTW ACX 2
an SSD drive

i thought of getting a compact mini-ITX corsair 250D but then i can only put a maximum of 16gb of ram. should it be enough? or do i need more? plus will 1600 hz RAM speed be enough?

im gonna use it for ue4 game developing for the oculus rift, 3ds max, sketchup, photoshop, sometimes all at once.

thanks for the help!


What are Unreal Engine 4’s system requirements?

For developing with UE4, we recommend a desktop PC with Windows 7 64-bit or a Mac with Mac OS X 10.9.2 or later, 8 GB RAM and a quad-core Intel or AMD processor, and a DX11 compatible video card. UE4 will run on desktops and laptops below these recommendations, but performance may be limited.

16GB should be generally enough, though when running a ton of content creation software all at once, the more the better. For instance, a machine I’ve used with 16GB would choke while running Maya (fluid sim stuff), Unreal, and After Effects all at once. In this case, after effects was the main ram eater.

Get more if you can :wink:
