P8p67 or p8h67 mobo

aight so ppl told me that for my build i should get a p8p67 mobo instead of p8h67 mobo (for gaming)
here is my build
Case:NZXT Hades
HDD:Western Digital (WD) Caviar BLUE WD5000AAKX 500GB SATA 6GB/s 16MB Cache HDD
GPU:Galaxy GTX 560 GC
Processor:Intel® Core™ i5-2400 3.1GHz Processor
PSU:Antec Basiq 550w
Monitor:Samsung SyncMaster BX2031 20 inch LED LCD monitor(1600x900)
as for the 2 mobo
P8H67:ASUS P8H67-M LE Socket 1155 motherboard
P8P67:ASUS P8P67 LE Socket LGA1155 motherboard
my current plans for ram r 2x4GB kingston 1333MHz V1.5
but if i get the P8P67 ill have to get either a 1x4GB or 2x2GB
cos of budget but maybe i can get another 4 GB in like 3 monthes
so if i go for p8p67 if it deserves it should i get (1x4GB) now and get another (1x4GB) in 3 monthes
or get (2x2GB) and another (2x2GB) in 3 monthes

Edit:i had a question bout the psu the GPU Requires 2 6 pin pci-e but the PSU has (1 x 6 Pin PCI-E, 1 x 6+2 PCI-E)
would the 6+2 work?

    for RAM get 2 x2 gig .

    p67 are for overclockers
    h67 are for people who want the graphics on the cpu

    since you are buying a processor thats not set up for overclocking you can save with the H67. You have plenty of cpu power anyway .

    Yes the psu works . Two pins snap off the 6 +2 connector to make a 6 pin
