What do you plan on doing on your rig? If you're only gaming, 4gb is more than enough.

Then 4GB will be enough.

Edit: Just saw you already have 8GB. Just keep it. I think it'll be more beneficial than having a higher speed. You might possibly get into something more resourceful and this will save you from ordering more in the future.
Also, hold onto your HAF932. It's a mighty fine case.

I would stay with 8gigs b/c a 4gb SLI system will not have as much ram to share with your gpus. Also, more ram means less pagefile use and its future proof lol ..
