Intel Core i7 Quadcore @ 3.40 GHZ
16 GB DDR3 @1600 MHz
Nvidia Geforce GTX 680
128GB Samsung SSD
2TB HDD
2x 24" Monitors

My Computer is around 1 Year old. I did not build it by my own, i only have chosen the components and the Shop build it for me together (last time i try to build my own Computer, the RAM went on fire, and killed my entire mainboard. And almost set my House on fire lol) I recently replaced the graphic card. I had the GTX 570 which i do not recommend, i did have some really strange heat problems with that graphic card.

What was the reason to go for 16GB, do you do any professional work on your computer that requires going with 16?
Yes, I do, but mainly I play games with it. I take the RAM from computers that break at my workplace. :p
Slowly getting moar RAM.

I have a laptop toshiba satellite l750

Intel i3 2330m 2.20gh'z (x4)
Intel hd 3000 1.3gb video card(Shared)
4Gb ram(- 1.3 = ~2,8Gb)

New laptop specs.

MSI GE60
OS: Windows 8 (which I actually love BTW)
CPU: i7-4700MQ quad-core
GPU: Nvidia GeForce GTX 765 w/2GB DDR5
Screen: 15.5" full HD 1080p
Memory: 8GB DDR3
SSD: SanDisk 128GB boot drive
HDD: Hitachi 750GB @7200 RPM storage drive
Optical Drive: Matshita DVD/CD-RW
It's also got a SteelSeries keyboard, pretty killer standard speakers, a sound blaster sound card, HDMI+VGA out, 2 USB 3.0 and 2 USB 2.0. It boots up in less than 10 seconds and works so smooth. I can play most games on ultra and get decent frames. I bought from powernotebooks.com, they put in the SSD for me and I highly suggest them if you're looking for a new computer or laptop.
