That is the current RAM that is on my motherboard. I would like to buy some more RAM to add to my computer. I mostly use my computer to play heavy demanding memory games and to record/edit videos. I am not sure if I should add 2x4gb more of ram, or if I should go for 1x8gb incase I want to add another 1x8gb in the future... Will 1x8gb make my computer slower? How will it affect the speed? What RAM sticks do you guys recommend I should buy? 2x4gb, 1x8gb? Any specific links to RAM sticks that are compatible?
I can't seem to find RAM sticks that have a 1.65V, 9 CAS Latency, and DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800). Help?

I would add one more set of kingston hyperx 8GB ddr3-1600 ram for best results. That would bring you to 16GBs of ram.
