I have a Gigabyte GA-MA785GMT-UD2H I was just wondering if this "G.SKILL Ripjaws Series 4GB 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1333 (PC3 10666) Desktop Memory Model F3-10666CL9S-4GBRL" is compatible? (link:http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820231310). Also I have 2 2GB ram installed if this is a problem?

Yes, that ram should be compatible. At the moment you ram is probably in dual channel mode but if you add the 4GB stick in, it will most likely go to single channel mode which is still ok but slower by a marginal.

Or is it better to put in an extra 2 2GB RAM; this will enable triple channel mode right? Do they have to be the same brand? and they will run at a speed equivalent to the slowest memory right?

Which do you think is better stick in a 4GB or 2 2GB?

No, your board does not have triple channel mode, only dual channel mode. It is better to have the exact identical ram which will all run at the same speed. I believe your better of with a single stick of that 4GB of ram, which will give you a option in the future to upgrade it to 8GB of ram.
