I have 32 gig of memory on my system. 16 wasn't enough, i was running out of memory. with 32, I have an 8 gig ramdisk which I load my games onto (I'm only actively playing one at a time, so if I switch games, I load another). While I don't need it because of extremely fast D drive (RAID 10, 8 drives) and an SSD C drive, a good disk cache is also useful in reducing access time.
It really depends on how much disk access you need to do. I'm writing some mods for a game, and found that when I started compiling on the RAM disk the compile times dropped significantly.
Hamas launched their rockets into Israel, Israel retaliates with full scale massive military campaign --- Gaza Strip almost flattened as a result
Ummm, your words:
"Hamas launched their rockets into Israel, Israel retaliates"
Israel didn't start it, Hamas did. And there were many examples of Hamas storing weapons in schools, in tunnels, launching missiles from playgrounds, etc. If Hamas cared for their people (they apparently don't), they would not conduct war this way. Israel did what they could to minimize civilian casualties. I said minimize, because it is impossible to totally avoid them, given what Hamas was doing.
So I ask you: Who are the terrorists? The ones launching cowardly, hidden attacks, or the ones defending themselves?
And all those tunnels built with concrete? Oh, you mean the concrete which Israel allowed into Gaza for civilian and humanitarian use? I guess Hamas doesn't care about using the supplies for civilians, making their lives better, etc.
