Stupid Question:
Is there a huge draw back to just putting in 1x16gb for now and upgrading to a second when I get the money?
2 sticks over 4 sticks would be better as it offers less stress and may result in a higher OC for the system and better stability really only comes into play with the more extreme OC's.
Buy what you can afford, don't worry about 2 vs 4.
