As much as you can afford to get. The more you have the better off you are.

There is no such thing as "too much" RAM...

you can pair 8GB of Ram with an Atom and N550 and that's going overboard so you're wrong. You just don't put Ram on a PC, you need to balance all the specs.

Right... Okay... So, my MB maxes out at 16Gbs. Geee, I guess if you want to pick that to pieces as well, by all means waste your time. :)

Pretty sure 32gb of ram would be "too much" for someone wanting to surf the net and play facebook games.

Not to mention a total waste of money.
