Default DDR3 for htpc

I'm about to put together an htpc compose of this motherboard : GA-H55N-USB3 and an I3. there won't be any gaming on it. Only web and 1080p movies.
There might be a mild overclock on the i3.
I've read the review about the
G.Skill ECO PC3-12800 CL7 and the lower heat is something I could benefit since there will be limited air flow. I know they also make a pc3-10666 kit,
Do I even need 4gb or 2gb would cut it? In that case I would have to go with some value ram I guess.

w7+xmbc+onboardvideo


any suggestion welcome
thank you
