just brew it! wrote:I think my last 2-3 builds have had the RAM costing close to (if not more than) the CPU. But then, given my use case I tend to value RAM size over raw CPU horsepower, and I also tend to buy ECC RAM if the system supports it. So it does not seem at all odd to me to spend a lot on the RAM.
Same here. 4 sticks of 16 gig unbuffered ECC RAM (..for multiple VM's). Almost 3 1/2 times the price of my CPU.
I remember when you could get the unbuffered ECC RAM in 16 gig sticks for as low as $81 around mid 2016.
-stupid @ss that I was, I thought: "sure, wait a bit - Black Friday isn't that far away, you can get it then for less."
