I'm currently running my 2600K @ 4 x 4.2GHz with 16GB of RAM. I was actually looking to build a system around the 3930K and use a mobo with eight RAM slots and run 64GB. The reason I need so much RAM is because I edit RAW (CinemaDNG) video and ProRes HQ 4:2:2 220Mbit (and also DNxHD 4:2:2 220Mbit). In Premiere CS5.5 (which I use), there is the option of "Performance" and "Memory" - if you select "Performance, Premiere doesn't use all your RAM and shares quite a bit of it with Windows and other applications. However, in "Memory" mode, which I run, Premiere lets you allocate how much RAM you wish to allow it to use and how much the system can use. The more RAM, the more of my project(s) I can load directly into RAM.
I'm still considering a 64GB system based on a X79 chipet...prices are good at the moment it seems.
