Hello my name is Kent from JustAnswer,
I am really sorry for the trouble you are facing in right now
But I'm here and happy to assist you today.
8GB of RAM is the sweet spot for the majority of users, providing enough RAM for virtually all productivity tasks and less demanding games.
If you’re running demanding applications like video editing and CAD, or you’re a hardcore gamer, then it is recommend that you start at 16GB and go up from there.
You're welcome, Yes there is no problem with that. It will still work balance.
Number 2 is better configuration, More ram better performance.
I'm sorry for my earlier reply, I've mistakenly read your message. Let me correct my answer
Performance is maximized if you balance the amount of ram across each CPU's.
Yes you should go for option #1.
You're welcome, Have a great day. And thanks for choosing us as your advisory partner.
