Other information: i am going to use this desktop for deep learning algorithms (and other machine learning algorithms) on huge machine learning dataset. Given, my work would be of research domain, i expect expect to overclock this system frequently. Also, i have a 1920 x 1080 Full HD resolution monitor.

Hello LTC8K6,

Thank you for suggestion. i agree quad channel RAM (4 x 8 GB) will provide more bandwidth than dual channel (2 x 16 GB). But, if i am not wrong, the final impact on performance will be minimal (i was checking the websites which compare performances, and there, the performances were almost same). But, given that the price is same (for dual and quad channels RAM), it would be better to go with quad channel RAM.

Thanks again for the recommendation (i did miss this part completely).
