Recording 4 TV channels and gaming simuntanously

My plan is to build a HTPC that I can also game on. I'm trying to figure out how much my game playing will be Affected if I am recording up to 4 TV channels or someone is watching TV and I am playing a game at the same time.

This is the components I plan on using in this build

AMD FX-6300 3.5GHZ

Corsair Cooling Hydro H55 CPU cooler

Corsair Carbide series 400R mid-Tower

Corsair Vengeance Pro Black 16GB 1600 Ram

Corsair CX 600W 80 plus bronze modular power supply

Asus M5A99x EVO R2.0 Motherboard

Gigabyte R9 280x 3GB GPU

Ceton Infini TV 4 channel cable card


After doing a lot of reading I have thought about going to 8GB of Ram VS 16GB. With the plan to have TV recording daily and TV being watched will it be better to stay with 16GB to handle the extra work or will 8gb still be efficient for gaming and recording/watching?
