AE - new system purchase, RAM allowance

If I'm not doing real complex 3D modeling and animation, what' the maximum RAM that AE and PPro can take advantage of in a system. For example.. doing 3D animation in AE, etc... is 32GB enough? does 64GB+ make any real difference in Open GL? - Thanks..

The more RAM, the better.

The biggest reason to want a lot of RAM is so that the global performance cache can keep large amounts of data in memory, which speeds up just about everything. See this video for details:

Also (and in my opinion, less important) more RAM means more processes able to run during Render Multiple Frames Simultaneously multiprocessing. Details:

Huh?

I think that you're confusing two totally unrelated things.

See this for what OpenGL means in the context of After Effects:
