Not? Then why buy an unlocked CPU?
Ram-wise, you will see an improvement using 2 ram sticks (Dual Channel), over a single stick.
All valid points, which have been considered - I chose these to leave a bit of room for improvement as a "down the road" sort of upgrade, OC when I get some more dough to drop into it, max 8GB per slot, so go with one stick of 8 for now, add in as necessary.
