So, I am building a PC this Summer and I struggle to find the best suitable RAM. In the future I am going to upgrade it so I am going with 8gb of RAM (for now). The motherboard has 4 slots for RAM sticks though can the i3 use all of them or just the 2 of them as in their site it states 2 channels of RAM(I’m not sure what is this)?
Also shall I go with a single 8gb stick or 2x4gb sticks? The higher I will go with RAM I think will be like 16GB.

Are you a serious gamer and also how many GB of Ram do you use? Just so I can see because it is my first build and and I don’t know much about building

Well I game 4+ hours a day so I think I game a bit. I have 16gb (usually around 10gb usage) but I don't use nearly as much, some for games and the rest for my browser and Netflix as I'm running a ultra wide screen and a 1080P monitor (spec link in sig), also have Oculus Touch VR.

I do have a friend who has a older system and can game with 4gb but he's cheap and refuses to buy more lol.

And that reminds me I need to update my PCP link as I bought that new monitor yesterday.

Is the 1060 worth it (value)?
