8GB is usually a good starting point for most games. If you start playing a large landscape game and notice some lag or choppy game play, those are good indications you need to install more RAM. Most games recommend 16GB of memory for speedy, high-performance play. Having this much RAM in your computer will allow you to change what games you play, and to avoid issues with lag and stuttering. If you want to edit your recorded gameplay, then you might want as much as 32GB.
