RAM DIMMS - real world different??

Im looking at getting a HP EliteDesk 800 G2, off the shelf spec:
  1. 1 x Core i7 6700 / 3.4 GHz
  2. RAM 8 GB
  3. SSD 256 GB
  4. 3D V-NAND technology
  5. DVD SuperMulti
  6. HD Graphics 530
  7. GigE - Win 10 Pro
This is going to be used as my main management desktop, Not going to be doing anything fancy on it as managing VMWare network etc.

Looking at increasing the RAM (this desktop has 8 slots and can take a max of 64GB). The site Im getting it from offers these two 8MB DIMMs:

thanks
