My policy nowadays is to always max out the RAM.

But that's me. I make extensive use of VMs, and when they're an integral part of your work routine, you can never have too much RAM. In my experience, you'll be memory-starved long before other resources become a problem.

This is where it's worth checking the maximum amount of memory a motherboard will accommodate. I used to never look at that figure. Now it's one of the first things I check. The next system I get, to replace my existing 64GB host, will either have 128GB or else it's not being replaced at all.
