Get RAM from a reputable brand. Of all of the above, Corsair and G.SKILL are the best. Also, get two modules of RAM. This will allow your motherboard to operate the RAM in dual channel mode, greatly improving performance.

Of all the them, I would probably get 2 corsair vengeance modules.

Yes, you need 2 matched modules for dual channel to work. Yes, with single 4GB will work but in single channel mode and not in Dual channel. No, it will not cause any problems but you will see a performance between the two modes. There is a performance diff of 10%-15% when comparing Dual channel with single channel. IMO, go with 2 x 4GB modules. 8GB is just the right amount of memory for any software's unless you are intending to run somethin with high memory intensive work. Hope that helps.

all motherboards now have only DIMM slots (no single channel). if i use only one memory chip(4 G or @ Gb) wont it work ?? because u said single chip will work only in single channel mode ,,

To run dual channel, you need a minimum of 2 sticks, 1 in each channel, each channel normally has two separate slots 1-2....if only 1 stick total it only runs in single channel, so yes a single stick will work -IN SINGLE channel mode which can be 10-15% slower than dual channel mode
