So I'm working on updating my gaming rig that I use pretty much for gaming, I may do they odd video editing here and there - but it's still used almost all the time for gaming

I want to play all the latest games maxed out a a solid 60fps (including the upcoming Crysis 3), I've got my hardware figured out except for my ram.

I want to know, for gaming...
Would 8gb (2400mhz - 2x4) be best, or 16gb (1886mhz - 2x8).

Thanks in advance for any responses

Go for 2x4gB 2400mhz card.
They will definitely be faster than 1866mhz also if you only use it for gaming then 8gB is enough.

Just make sure your motherboard supports 2400mhz.
Also To run crysis 3 at 60fps you need a blazing fast gpu and also an ssd.
