Purchase Motherboard comes w/ free RAM?

So I am thinking (from a long time ago post haha) of getting this http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813157293&nm_mc=OTC-pr1c3grabb3r&cm_mmc=OTC-pr1c3grabb3r-_-Motherboards+-+Intel-_-ASRock-_-13157293

For the Intel I5 that I plan on getting...(finally got the cash!)


However, I was also wanting to upgrade my RAM...but that motherboard comes with a free 8 GB Stick...but its just one stick...people say I should maybe get a 4X2? (4 GB In each) instead? So I would end up getting http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820231460&nm_mc=OTC-pr1c3grabb3r&cm_mmc=OTC-pr1c3grabb3r-_-Memory+%28Desktop+Memory%29-_-G.SKILL-_-20231460

If that is the case...or if the 1 stick is enough, could save 50 bucks...but...hmm....opinions, ideas? :).

    One stick is ok to use; the speed difference between single channel and dual channel is small, less than 10%.
