Hello, will I get better performance from using 1 8GB chip, or 2 4GB chips?

2 4GB DIMMS will run a little faster than a single 8GB one.

I don't think they make 8gb chips/sticks.

Two sticks will operate in dual channel mode, and be faster than single channel mode. But,... not by enough that you would normally notice the difference.
