That's awesome, but I have one question: would 1x8GB ram stick be ideal compared to 2x4GB ram sticks?

2x4 is better as it is single channel.

Since he is working with video editing, why not get him 16GB in 8x2 form? He could upgrade to 32 down the road if he wants.

But to what extent would it be feasible(price/performance wise) because I don't know how much he will do(I will ask though).

2x4 should be a bit cheaper than 1x8

To add, dual channel kits are generally better than a single stick of ram or 3 sticks of ram.
