Yeah, 16GB would definately be overkill at this point - the highest I've seen it was around 5500MB while using a virtual machine (Win XP with 3.25 GB dedicated RAM). The only reason I was considering the extra 8 gigs is the price. It seems the older and more outdated RAM gets, the more expensive it gets.

Valid point, as it falls from current production the price does go up.
