Definitely. And depending on the games you play, 64GB can also be necessary for a gaming rig, e.g. if you are into sims like DCS World. It's been a recommendation for many years to have 64GB RAM for DCS World.

I also upgraded from 32GB DDR5-6800 to 64GB DDR5-6600 not too long ago. It is actually a DDR5-6800 kit and the 32GB kit was actually a DDR5-7200 kit but either my mobo or my CPU/IMC can not handle the nominal speeds so I had to dial back the speed a bit for 100% stability. 64GB of DDR5-6600 at CL32 latency is still pretty nice so I'm not complaining.

If anyone is in the business for memory (RAM, SSD, anything) then I would recommend to hurry up. Prices have been on the rise for a couple of months now and are expected to keep on rising throughout the entire year of 2024. Upgrading is only going to get more expensive from here on out.

For me it is less gaming and more workload intensive tasks. Try virtualizing a whole pool of virtualizing hosts running nested virtualization (yes, that word salad totally makes sense in this context) so you can run even more VMs because you are test piloting a whole tech stack shift. That 64GB ran out very, very quickly. None of what I run, game wise, really soaks up the resources anymore.

Though if I went with 256GB, I could carve off 64GB as a drive and use that as a fast cache...but then I'd need an Epyc Rome or better CPU and then the money starts getting real.
