Hi, in my new build, ill was gonna go with 8gigs of ram. But then since I will be video editing/rendering for youtube, I decided to go with 12. But I need to know if it will make much of a difference.
This is the build
Also suggesting some ram would be nice as well :)

Either go with 8 or 16GB. 16GB will help with editing.

Why not 12? And do you know which 16 I should get?

The 1155 chipset supports Dual Channel RAM.

This means the best configuration to have is Two DIMMS of higher density, rather than four lower density DIMMS

So look for a 2x8GB kit to purchase.
This RAM
Is only a bit more expensive, and would be the best choice for you.
