    I was browsing my Amazon purchase history just for the heck of it and noticed a 64 DDR4 kit order I made in August 2016, price was $250. Price of the same kit is now $690.

    Memory prices will start to drop in the next few months

    Chip Stocks Tank on Morgan Stanley's Soft NAND Price Outlook

    Is about time since these chip manufacturers have been making big profits for too long at the expense of PC market and other consumer devices.

    2018 will be the year to build new systems for those looking for upgrades; Intel and AMD releasing new CPUs, Nvidia/AMD releasing new GPUs and memory market returning back to normal.

    I'm quite happy with my system at the moment. For what I've been doing, the 16 GB of RAM are more than sufficient.

    The only upgrades I'd consider are more SSDs to replace the HDDs full of old crap I still have.

    I think your system should be ok with current GPU generation, but once Nvidia releases next generation video cards, the system will become a bottleneck if you ever consider upgrading to newer GPUs
