Upgrading your PC: Where to Start

If you’re planning on updating your gaming rig, now is definitely the time to do it; 2013 is already shaping up to be an incredible year for the games industry, and an optimised PC is the best way to ensure you’ll get the most out of them. Whether you’re picking up Bioshock Infinite or joining the clan in a round of Battlefield 4, you want to feel as immersed in these new worlds as possible – without breaking the bank. With that in mind, here’s our guide to updating the many components of your PC, so you can improve rather than replace your system. (Battlefield 4, BioShock: Infinite, PC, Tech)

"You want about two to four GB of RAM to run the latest games."

So again, Ps4 wasted resources on 8gb dd5. That and console OS use even less ram than windows for PC. Swell, coulda used the money for a better gpu, imo.

2GB ram is pretty low imo.

4GB Ram is sweetspot and anything above it should only be considered if you like to multitask alot.

I have 8GB of ram and usually when bored I keep on Alt+tabbing out to check on FB, N4G.
Extra RAM does comes in handy.

exactly. 8GB ram should be OK for at least the next 5 years. If you were to build a PC on a budget, 4GB would be fine right now, but probably not enough down the road.

@RBlue_Desire

I agree with on on 8gb for pc builds, for 2 reasons. One, ddr3 ram is dirt cheap, so why not? Second, current desktop cpu's and gpu's are blazing fast, so having the ram be several years future proof is a good thing.

My point was, that next gen consoles (sony and ms is going to be about the same), have cpu speeds already half of my 3.5ghz, and are using laptop components. Laptop parts were a necessity because they run much cooler, but are a lot slower. So basically next gen consoles will be bottlenecked long before 4gb ram+ is ever utilized.
