8gb RAM - How do I know if I need more?

iMac - MacRumors Forums - forums.macrumors.com
I was wondering if there is any software that you can use to monitor how much RAM that is being used throughout a day and if it is maxed out at times? I currently only have 8gb of RAM on my iMac that will be used for Excel, hobby photo/video editing and a big of gaming and wondering how to figure out if I need more at the moment or if I should wait.

Any suggestions are welcome

I read some posts of the long thread about what RAM to buy and from what brand with over 600 replies, but I couldn't really figure what is the best option. My initial thought was just to buy from Crucial.com if I'm ending up needing more RAM. If anyone have a better suggestion that I'm all ears!

Would also be perfect if someone could explain where to put the two new RAM, as in what slots, I understand it as the current setup is at 1,3. Can I just then put it the two new ones on 2,4?

Thank you in advance
