just out of curiosity, what are you doing that will use all that RAM?

I was hoping that by increasing from 8 to 16, it would reduce work on the processor when video converting
Mostly because I just wanted it though. . . . I almost certainly don't need it  ;D

RAM won't reduce processor load; those calculations still have to be made.  It might reduce disk writes, but I doubt that's a limiting factor in video conversion for you.  What has your memory usage been like?

I admit, I tend to be pretty skeptical of the benefits of large amounts of RAM for most applications.
