Default Memory - 2 slots or 4 slots?

Will be buying ivy bridge as soon as I can get my hands on it.

I know anything more then 8 GB is a waste for gaming, but want to go at least 16 since I do run a few VM and figured could not hurt since cheap.

So is it better to get 2 sticks instead of 4 sticks? Does it matter?

I noticed the 2 stick set is not much faster then DDR 3 1600. Do I need faster memory? I am not going to be huge into overclocking.

I was looking at something like this:

But if you have better recommendations please feel free.

Thanks
