On that note, I did run with both 8GB and 16GB and my few minutes of testing it seemed to scale well and not max me out in either instance. With 16GB I was getting 10GB+ of usage overall but with 8GB I wasn't cracking 7GB. It wasn't my focus of testing, just necessitated by my RAM troubles, but I didn't notice any difference at the time.I'm definitely interested with how more modern hardware deals with that game!
I did notice that Cities Skylines eats through ram and is maxed out. I was tempted to swap my ram for 24gb's worth but then realized that's like $240 worth of ram on old hardware I'm ditching in a few years. So I refrained myself. lol
I think Windows 10 is always way better about RAM management than previous OS's so that's part of it.
