Recently I accidentally bumped my computer case, which caused it to lock up. I couldn't get it to start again until I removed the RAM stick from the leftmost slot, and sadly after testing, it's the slot that's bad, not the stick. So instead of the 8GB I've been used to having, I'm down to 6. I had 4 x 2GB sticks and RAM prices are lower than I thought, I was thinking of getting 2 x 4GB or even 2 x 8GB if I found a good deal. But now I'm wondering if I'll even notice the missing 2 GB. I mostly just play games, recently lots of WoW and XCOM, sometimes with Chrome and IM open in the background. Occasionally I'll stream or record video. I'm trying to make this computer last another 2 years before I get a new one, so I don't mind the investment unless it's not even going to matter.
