New build, RAM question

I’m building a 2950x Threadripper, 1080 Ti, 1 TB NVMe M.2, with various other odds and ends.

My question is whether 128 GB of 3000Mhz ddr4 would be a waste on this system
Should I just go with 64 GB or would this system be able to get see use out of 128?

Hi Matthew,

The question is what kind of projects are you processing on the daily basis? 

With 64 GB of RAM, we expect that you can process medium to large projects (up to 3000-4000 medium resolution images) without issues. However, for a very large project/datasets, a high amount of RAM is preferable so that we usually suggest to increase the RAM to 128GB :wink:
