Assuming gamer:
8 a solid recommended minimum.
16 handles additional overheads many will use.
32 specific needs territory.
End.

This, at LEAST until the next generation of consoles comes out with a LOT more ram.
I have 16gb, and I've turned my page file off. Yes, that causes some weirdness, but I'm on SSD and I really am not trying to kill these drives any sooner than I have to. Point is, I've never ran out of ram unless I tab out of a game and start up ANOTHER game. *THEN*, I usually run out of memory and one or both shuts down.

I'm using an 8gb 1080, and my monitor is 1440p.
