You don't really need more than 8gb (if that) of ram for either of those tasks. You won't notice a difference in performance but if its something you really want I would go with 2x8gb. Its slightly cheaper than 4x4gb and you will have more to upgrade in the future should you even need to.

I would vote for 2 x 8gb.
It is easier for the motherboard to manage two sticks vs. 4 if you are overclocking.
Just check that the kit is supported on your motherboard.
