PC upgrade 32GB of RAM or 64GB?

I’m upgrading my set up for Unreal Engine and need RAM advice please.

These are the parts I’ve ordered for my rig,

Palit GeForce RTX 3070 Ti GamingPro 8GB

Aorus B360 Gaming WIFI motherboard

i9-9900K

Corsair CX850M

LG 98LS95D 4K 98" LCD

HP Reverb G2

All I need to order now is Corsair Vengeance RGB Pro RAM sticks.

Would you buy 4x8GB or 4x16GB?

Will it make a difference?

Definitely will make a difference. 64GB will make your rig last longer and more stuff loaded into RAM will reduce the access to mass storage, which by the way you didn’t mention. It is a good practice have a SSD (around 480GB is enough) for the Operating System, another SSD for all the tools (including UE) which might be a SATA SSD (1 or 2TB are safe bets) and you will want a NVMe SSD of at least 1 TB for project files. If that added cost is too much, you can have your tools into a regular hard drive and a SATA SSD for the project files with those much storage space mentioned.
