Adding the extra 4GB will help in video editing and/or rendering, depending on the size of the project he is working on. If his projects aren't large, I'd just stick with the 4GB.
Asus P5Q Deluxe
ATI 4890 1Gb
all speed and cooling stock
his videos are about 10 min in length and full hd
it could be a stupid question but would it be better for him to overclock the cpu for faster render times and fps increases an of course get a better cooler first lol.
