Yes, I started considering it because of RAM prices climbing. (Should have considered it a few months ago...oh well
) I never have money 'burning to be spent' but that's just the way I look at spending money, not that I "can't" pay for it.
I was holding off for Haswell but the itch got to me, and I have consolidated my PCs (main and storage server/secondary) into one - turns out the 775 mobo in the storage server is now worth *more* than what I paid years ago...craziness. i5 3570K on an Intel DH77EB (which btw is awesome for power draw - idling at the desktop it draws ~45W with an SSD and 3 hard drives spinning but not seeking and a GTX 660. That's less than the idle power draw of the SSD/1 HDD/GTX660 system it replaces by about 20W! When the hard drives spin down it's ~35W
using a 450W 80+ Gold PSU. It's made me very jaded about power draw figures in reviews - the motherboard matters a TON. Anyway...) It was a bit of an impulse but a worthwhile upgrade over the Clarkdale I was running as my main system. I am going to skip Haswell now so the next possible upgrade timeframe is Broadwell.
The 8GB I have now is that sweet Samsung low profile/low voltage that also overclocks like mad. The mobo is limited to DDR3-1600 though (at least without XMP)
so I have it running DDR3-1600 CAS8 at 1.40V. Given the upgrade timeframe there's two ways to look at it: 1) I don't 'need' 16GB for anything I do, and won't likely take up the known heavy RAM uses I listed, so don't bother. or 2) I will be keeping this system for at least 2 years, and in that timeframe...who knows? DDR4 isn't coming to desktop until post-Broadwell from what I've read, so I may have DDR3 for a long time including Broadwell. The only catch would be what DDR3 speeds Broadwell will support, I wouldn't buy DDR3-2133 now and it's logical that will be an official speed for Broadwell.
Sorry for the long post, as usual I overcomplicate things
I am leaning toward no because of my uses and not spending money = good, but still thinking about it because 2 years is a long time.
