Go with 32GB of mem or more.
I don't think this is necessary at all. Memory (16gb) was never a problem for me. Others can opine but I wanted to call this out for debate/discussion.
edit - Ehhh, maybe for high camera counts it could be. I never ran that many.

I tend to agree- 8GB is okay, 16GB is usually more than enough RAM. I have 16GB with 9 cams running and RAM usage almost never goes above 3GB.
I think the money would be better spent on getting the beefiest CPU you can afford. You can never have too much processing power.
If it turns out that 8 or 16GB isn't enough RAM, you can always add more without spending a lot.
