Hi Fahad

If your motherboard supports dual channel go with dual channel . It is better on performance . Think of it as 2 lanes on the road instead of just one . More cars could pass through with two lanes same thing with dual memory . More data could go back and forth .

I agree.

Multi-channel memory architecture - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

unless you are planning on getting another 8GB stick or anything. this would only be useful though for heavy graphics and video processing.

If you are wanting a total of 8GB, I'd go with a 2x4GB kit. 8GB of 1600MHz RAM would be your best bet.
