For me, the logical purchase is 8GB (4x2) today to give me 12GB which is overkill.
Then, maybe in the future, replace the 2x2 with 4x2.
I do have difficulty believing that 16GB will be the required minimum when I sell our new iMac (ordered today from SmallDog) in 2.5 years.


You can get Crucial 8 GB kit for $243


You can 8GB kit up to $215 by there brands

You can get 16GB of RAM for $430

Hope this saves lot of money.
