Well I do have 12Gig of RAM and my only real option would be to double that. I have all 6 slots filled right now (6 x 2Gig) - so I'd be looking at a 24Gig kit (6 x 4Gig). It seems to me that 12Gig should be fine for my needs at this point. And when summer rolls around I'd like to build a completely new rig based around the 6 core i7 Extreme Sandy Bridge LGA 2011 CPU. That wouldn't make all that RAM useless - but it would be seriously under-clocked based on the CPU, FSB, and the L cache.

That's why I'm really leaning towards a GPU upgrade - it would be reusable in my new system I'll build this summer without being a bottleneck based on what I want to build (unless the professional cards jump on the PCIe x16 3.0 bandwagon).
