use 2 x 4 GB. So you could have room for more in the future. Lets say you want to add more 2x4. where as when you use 2 2x2 you have maxed out your slots and you wont have room for upgrades. :D

get two sticks so you can have dual channel. if you have 1 8gb stick it will only run with half the max theoretical bandwidth. Probably not much of a difference though.

oh so he was talking about ONE set of 4 sticks. I thought he was asking about one 8gb stick, hence the title 8gb vs 2x4gb
