I already dread for my 2018 PC, 64GB of RAM is going to surpass my GPU budget why a fair margin. It also doesn't help that SSD tech has been stagnated for the last two years.

Why do you need that much RAM? You plan on running like 12 VM's at once?

Rendering, VM, RAM disks, actually having the capacity to keep Chrome open while playing a game / using RAM intensive programs.

fair enough but I keep chrome open with like 30+ tabs and game just fine off of 8GB of RAM


Not PUBG

Kinda crappy when with this mess happening, the PREBUILT gaming rigs are looking like better buys for first-time PC gamers than building one's own machine.

The one x can't even stay above 30 fps a decent amount of the time, and only 2 frames faster than the base one according to benchmarks. f*** that game as a gauge of performance.
