Subject: RE: how much ram in new computer

If you right click on the taskbar and then click on "Task Manager" it will bring up an app that give you a good idea of what your computer using it's resources on. I have Win 10 but I think Win 7 is pretty similar. Click the "Process and "Performance" tabs to see what is happening. In the process tab you can click on the CPU and Memory columns to get a sorted list to see what is using the most memory and CPU. This is can be helpful in finding performance bottlenecks.

Even with all the stuff you have going I would think 24GB would be fine unless you are dealing with some very large files in the apps you have open.

Edit to add:

Another thing that can sometimes really kill performance is internet security software. On an older computer I once had to turn off something IIRC called Behavior Shield because it was slowing things down too much. This may vary from one security software package to another.
