Nowadays it's X, where X is what the mobo will support.

Unless you're into messing around with VMs or doing photo editing on huge multi-layer high-res images, 16GB really should be enough. But if your mobo supports 32GB, it will make the system feel a lot smoother by allowing the OS to cache pretty much everything you're using at any given time, and completely eliminating the need for the OS to ever hit the pagefile.
These days I consider 8GB to be bare minimum for a new build, and 16GB to be "sweet spot" in terms of cost/performance.
