    I guess it depends how heavily you run it.
    i have 4 campaigns at the moment but only building a few thousand links per day and gsa itself is using about 300-400mb.

    The answer to this will vary considering how you use it and for what. I would say 3GB to 4 would handle
    it just fine. Again the answer is subjective to how extensively you use it.

    I run it on 2gb, it doesn't take much ram around 600-700 max, most often 400-500, but you will need good cpu, mine is whole time on 99% and i have 2 cores.

    You can go only with 1GB but you will have OS memory that's take a lot too and get limited with few project and even more if use a lot of keyword. 2GB is the minimum
    You can get 2GB plan with us at $20,79 (using BHW20 -20% coupon).

    We have certainely more than hundred GSA SER running on our server.

    If you'll run GSA SER + GSA CB together you'll need 3Gb to 4Gb or RAM

    Just want to give my experience, I have used it quite well on a 2GB vps with captcha sniper. Just depends how fast/how many threads you want to run at once.

    I went from dual core, 2GB RAM to 4GB RAM (13.4GHz CPU) and now to a dedi with 8 cores, 32GB RAM and I think it's about right for me now. I run 450 projects 75 on scheduler switching every 20 minutes. I would like a faster CPU and probably 16GB RAM would be good enough, but the dedi supplier didn't have the 4.2GHz CPU in stock so I have a slower one and it runs at 99% all day. With SolidSEOVPS (the Wizard 4GB one) I was running at 2GB RAM and 99% at all times. I can run SER + Scrapebox full tilt with the dedi now.

    2GB RAM should be fine but you need powerful CPU to make it run smoothly

    2GB is ideal. Because posting at 100 LPM GSA only uses about 600mb of ram on my VPS. But one thing I noticed about GSA is it seems to "bleed" RAM. Like if I run if for 7 days straight, even if its posting at a similar LPM, the ram slowly crawls up higher and higher each day. So I have to shut down and restart the program.

    I actually got my first VPS over a week ago from Berman Hosting. I went for their "VPS Extra" plan which is $28.99/month. I'm not an affiliate for them (no link lol) but for my first VPS, I am EXTREMELY impressed.

    The PC I had GSA running on had 2gb of ram, and 2 faster cores than my VPS... but it ran >>> 6-8 times slower.

    I think the reason why is because personal PCs get cluttered with TONS of programs that hog threads and operate in the background. Along with uninstalled programs and tons of other shit the system down. Getting a VPS was one of the best investments I ever made. After my first month, I'm upgrading to Bermans fastest system and contracting it for a year. Because the amount of money I will save on backlinks will be like 100xs the cost of that contract. :)

    It will really depend on how extensive you'll be using it. 1gb is good enough for very small projects. 4gb on a dedi can handle several campaigns.

    2GB RAM is more than enough, normally it's always around 1GB. But it consumes much CPU so you should care abt CPU not RAM honestly.
