im asking this question not becaues i don't know the benefits of dual channel but because I don't know whether or not 16GB would be necessarily for gaming in say 2-3 years?

You should use 2x4Gb, as dual channel is going to make loading everything faster, as you have two RAM slots to transfer data instead of one.

I don't think you will need over 8GB within a couple years, when we do DDR 4 should be ready and time to change to that anyway.... :)

I totally agree :)  DDR4 is being released with Haswell-E next year. Can't wait to sink my teeth into their new extreme series processor and see what Nvidia has to offer :D
