    Re: Optimum memory to run Photoshop CS6

    Keep all your memory sticks the same. Your performance (speed) will be determined by the slowest memory you have. Remember that it's measured in capacity (GB) and ability (MHz). If you go with 8GB sticks, buy an extra or two and toss the 4GB sticks. Memory also works best in pairs. Two 8GB sticks would be plenty for most operations.

    Buy as much as you think you need, because memory works opposite of the rest of consumer goods: once it becomes outdated, it appreciates in price.

    I think a total of 16GB should be about right to keep up with the processor. that way all 4 of the memory modules will be matched also.

    Re: Optimum memory to run Photoshop CS6

    Well, I ordered two 8GB sticks and added them in. They are all the same speed so they work well together. I now have 24GB total. they came in this morning via UPS and were installed minutes after I opened the package. Booted up the computer and checked to make sure Windows was seeing all of it correctly. All worked great right out of the box. Next on to PhotoShop to see how much torture it would take. first I loaded a 8 frame NEF panorama. Processor went all the way up to 28% so no stress there. Memory did not come close to maxing out so good there. It was a lot faster than it was before the memory upgrade. I did not measure but I think it was close to twice as fast? Maybe not that much of an increase but it was less than a minute to do the entire panorama. ON my laptop I would start it and walk away. I can have Bridge and Photoshop open at the same time and have Nikonites and Facebook all open at the same time and never miss a beat.
