    There isn't any game that will make use of that much RAM. You can Google and see that the difference in performance between 4GB and 8GB of RAM is pretty much nil. High levels of RAM are handy when running multiple applications and speeding the boot of applications. But for gaming - anything above 8GB is pretty much worthless.

    Yup - a game's performance is (in general) about 70% based on the video card (with most current cards having 1GB of resident RAM), then 20% on CPU and 10% RAM.

    If there was a game that used 16GB RAM it would have painfully long loading times.

    Unless you have a good SSD :)

    Google 64-bit (native) games. They are the ones that *can* use that amount of ram. Whether they will is another story...
