    I was looking at this system and i wanted this system to last for a good couple of years, and am concerned that 16GB wont be enough in the future.

    When i spoke to sales they said adding another two 8GB sticks to get to 32GB would likely affect the overclock and wouldn't be able to get the 4.9ghz overclock. But i would of thought there would be a pair of 16GB sticks that could be used in its place for a price premium

    Yes... but did you ask sales if they could do that for you?

    It may still affect the overclock.

    RAM is unlikely to be what limits you in the future. Most games don't require greater than 8 gb, 16 gb is already your future proofing. It will most likely be the GPU that holds you back.

    This all of course, assumes you are gaming. For proper work, more RAM Is helpful!

    16GB is fine for a good while for a gaming machine man, I'd go with that.

    games like pubg want more than 8gb.16gb is ideal for now and future.

    16GB Ram and you won't need to touch it for 5+ years.
