#3. 500GB is plenty of space for games and some music/movies, and the Hybrid drive is going to be faster than the 7200 RPM drives.

Memory, honestly doesn't matter much. DIMMS are the memory sticks, most boards hold a max of 4. If you're going to keep this for awhile might just get the 2 DIMM in case you want to add more memory later (although 8GB is plenty for gaming purposes).
