Some of my games are starting to max out the 8GB of RAM that I currently have in my PC. I may be able to get another 4GB to reduce the stuttering but I'm wondering whether having the dual channel disabled in favour of an extra 4GB of RAM is going to be worth it. I'll use the same model of RAM to ensure compatibility. So is it worth doing this or will it be worse for the performance?

Dual channel is probably enabled for 8GB and not enabled for 4GB.

If you are running out of memory, I think it's worth putting extra memory despite losing some of dual channel.
