    its up to you really,but with a 64bit os i would go for 4x2gb sticks,it might be a little hard to run all 8gb at its rated speed so you might have to underclock the ram slightly,you wont know for sure unless you test but 8gb underclocked will be better than 4gb full speed

    If you go to G.Skill web site and find the modules you`re looking at there is a qualified motherboard list.
    I`m using 2x2Gb G.Skill F2-8500CL5D in my GA-EP45-DS3P and they work fine, even though these aren`t on the qualified motherboard list.

    I didn't really get the answers that i was looking for, so i ordered G.Skill Trident F2-8500CL5D-4GBTD (2Gx2)
    Because i am fed up with GigaByte boards not being able to boot up after bios crash, when bios is reset. With the default mem voltage of 1.8v. my last memory modules required 2.1v just to boot, and i had to actually lend som other memory just to go into bios just to set mem voltage up :( NOT Funny!
    But i also needed some idears on going from 2gb to 4gb or 8gb (advantage/disadvantage) and if so then with 2 or 4 modules???
