Since you like to run GB and iMovie which requires rendering, if it were me..
"Select a base configuration above, then add options to build the iMac that’s right for you, including:3
Dual-core processor up to 3.33GHz
Quad-core processor up to 2.8GHz
*Memory up to 16GB*
Hard drive up to 2TB"
I'm not sure if you can, "future proof" any computer. If it were me, I'd upgrade the RAM as much as I could afford for increased stability and performance. I'd also go with the 3.33GHz.
*Thank you for the star.*

I believe only the 27 inch has four RAM slots. :~))
Well, both Crucial and Apple list four.
Apple's 8GB option: "4x2GB"
Crucial: "Maximum Memory: 16384MB
Slots: 4 (2 banks of 2)
Standard Memory: 4096MB removable

I purchased Kingston ram (2 x 2GB) to upgrade my 21.5" to 8GB and simply swapped that out to the new 27". Cheers!
