  1. LGA 1366 supports triple channel memory so you would want 6GB or 12 GB or any combination of matched 3 sticks. 8GB would be for dual channel memory or 2 matched sticks. 8GB will work but not give you the benefit of triple channel support. I like Corsair and GSkill myself and DDR3 1600 should do well with that MB/CPU.
