For what you are planning on doing, you wont notice a difference between the two.

Dual Channel is definitely better than single channel, it stops bottle necking.

Exactlly. The performance games that you would expect are only in the most demanding games. Even then, the gains will be un-noticed. Personally if I were this guy instead of 2x2 or 1x4, I would spend the extra $15 for 2x4gb. 4gb is kinda like the new minimum that 2gb was 5 yrs ago.

Are you asking if Gigabyte or Asus is better? I think they are about equal. Both companies make very good products.
