You can, but you leave no upgrade path for more RAM, and running 4 memory sticks will stress your memory controller (negatively affecting OC) more than running 2 sticks.

Thus, 2 x 4gb sticks is the smarter option now, even if it costs a little more.

I also personally dislike OCZ ram, bad personal and friend experiences. I always gravitate towards GSkill or Mushkin, with Corsair a last resort.

Yes you can but you're better off buying 2x4. Your overclock will not be hindered as much by having only 2 DIMMs filled instead of all 4. The only thing is that I wouldn't buy OCZ RAM. I would suggest this set:
