It really depends on what the computer will be used for.

For the majority of things (including gaming) anything above 4GB is a waste at this moment in time.

However, if you do lots of Photoshop / Illustrator / indesign type work, or movie editing, 3d modelling work etc then the more ram the better.

if you get the dominator GT's 2000 you can run them at 1600 with cas7 easy
those kits are blazing and you still have room to spare to go up to 2000 mhz and beyond
amount is really up to your preferance

You can either be part of the problem or be part of the solution.
