8gb ram vs 12gb ram

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 http://pcpartpicker.com/ca/p/nLy0
Also suggesting some ram would be nice as well :)

More about 12gb
  1. Either go with 8 or 16GB. 16GB will help with editing.
  2. Why not 12? And do you know which 16 I should get?
  3. Best answer
    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 http://www.newegg.ca/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820231558
    Is only a bit more expensive, and would be the best choice for you.
  4. Your motherboard and CPU is set up for dual channel ram, either two or 4 sticks. http://pcpartpicker.com/ca/part/patriot-memory-pvi316g160c9k
