16MB RAM, is it enough?

Recommended Posts

Morning all,

Hope everyone is enjoying the patch 2, I haven't had a chance to install yet.

I recently built a new PC, Ryzen 3600, Nvidia 1660 Super, 16Gig Ram, etc.

The performance in the sim is ok and I am on the whole really pleased as I was working to a budget.

Would I see any significant improvement in the Sim if I upgraded to 32Gig Ram.

Is it with spending another £60 odd quid?.

Appreciate your thoughts.

Chris

I have 16GB of RAM and a 1080Ti card , 9700K i7. I don't see any reason to upgrade my RAM to 32GB. If I were you, I would perhaps put the money towards upgrading your graphics card

If you have posibilities to add 16Gb more you will see better results on the sim not a lot, but significant. Do you know that later we will need some external mods or addons an Ram is very usefull. Ram pirces are down from now to next january, you can wait and buy as cheaper you can.

Sorry or me english.

Yes, 

But with 2080ti which would be the one I would like still retailing @ £1000+, I would have to wait.

So you dont think an extra 16gig ram will make any difference at all?

Patch 2 has optimized RAM usage too: while until yesterday when I flew over big cities I had 17 - 17.5 GB in use, now the usage over Manhattan and in JFK is about 15.5 GB.

With the 1660 you will not play at high resolution and very high detail anyway, therefore I doubt you need 32 GB for now.

My thinking is for £60 it will not break the bank and more addons become available, it will not do me any harm.

There is 2x 8gb Corsair 2400 Ram Ryzen optimised in my basket.

Do I press check out or not?
