Corsair Vengeance DDR3 8 GB (2 x 4 GB) PC RAM (CMZ8GX3M2A1600C9R) @ Rs.6,100/- (OR) TWO PRODUCTS Corsair DDR3 4 GB (1 x 4 GB) PC RAM (CMX4GX3M1A1600C11) @Rs.5250/- (2625*2=5250)..

Kindly note, I mentioned TWO PRODUCTS of (1 x 4 GB) and and ONE PRODUCT of ( 2 x 4 GB) RAMS.. Finally they both will be dual channel 8 GB.. But there is price difference.. My question is what drawback will I get if I purchase the lowest priced product or vice versa?

I think the 2x4gb ram has better latency. Just bought the RAM myself, all's well so far....

You should buy the 2 x 4 GB kit. The reason is because one module will use Single Channel mode whereas the two modules will use Dual Channel. The performance is pretty much negligible. However, if you are gaming, depending on the game, that 4GB will get used up pretty quickly. Also, you typically don't want to mix RAM modules because of possible stability issues. When you buy a kit, they are designed and tested to run together. Independent sticks are just that, designed to run independently.

I stick to my earlier opinion. Go with the 2x4gb RAM, it will perform better and be more stable as barto said. I did the same( checked on forums and stuff ) before buying it on Flipkart

That means you don't want to use TWO 1 x 4 modules because they aren't designed to run together. You want to buy the ONE 2 x 4 kit because the modules are designed to run together.
