Do you think 32 GB is overkill like our Hardware management is saying as push back?
Yes. I would also ask for an argumentation of "Hardware Management", just to see if it is a pushback.

I'm currently on a i3 (laptop cpu) with 16Gb; that may sound slow, but thanks to SSD it works quite speedy. Booting in seconds, launching VS in seconds. Good enough to Warcraft Smile | :)

Possibly will try running RAM Drive for temp file usage in Visual Studio
Doesn't bring much additional speed, unless your HD is really slow. With Windows memory management the entire ram-disk may be pushed into virtual memory if the system needs space. It also does not speed up compiling that much.

The managers that make the hardware purchase decisions for our organization says why do you need 32 GB of RAM, that's way over kill and you don't need that powerful of CPUs either.
Log the time that you are waiting for the compile to complete, and express that value in money (time * your costs). That way you have a financial argument, something that managers are sensitive to.
