re memory. The higher the chip density, the lower its latency. For highly ram dependant applications that benefit from good access times, high density ram is less useful.
16GB is really fine. I ran with 8 a while ago and couldn't tell the difference. If your using an SSD the swap/scratch space is less of an issue.
get a 3930K based on a gigabyte board if you want to make a fast hack. There are other options but GB make the most 'hackable' boards. Do your research. Neither platform will make much of a difference to the way LR or PS run. Some people have reported better LR performance with Win8.
However, if you want to save a few bucks get an ivy bridge setup instead. It wont make much difference to LR.
