Just go with 4 gigs unless you really need it. OC'ing gets harder the more memory sticks you have.

What are you planning on using the DFI motherboard for? If you are using crossfire/tri-fire I would recommend MSI boards. Most run cf at 16x and 16x and tri-fire at 16x, 16x, and 8x

It's not bad but I would make 2 changes. I would either get the MSI GD70 or the Gigabyte 790FX with USB 3.0 support for the motherboard and I would get the G. Skill Ripjaws DDR3 1600Mhz Cas 7 RAM. The RAM is cheaper that what you have listed as well.

I'm sorry to hear that I've only had one issue with a Gigabyte Board and all it took to fix it was an RMA and they replaced the BIOS and it worked perfectly afterward. In fact, I've been buying more Gigabyte Boards so far for quite sometime now.
