I have already bought the board but im looking for ram to go with it. I may be regretting my purchase, please tell me if this ram will work with my board.
ASUS P8Z77-V LE Motherboard with G.SKILL Trident 16GB 2400 Desktop Memory Model F3-2400C10Q-16GTD. Or if the G.SKILL Trident X Series 16GB 2400 Desktop Memory Model F3-2400C10D-16GTX would be a better suit?

The C10D is officially supported by Asus for this board, but in my opinion it's overkill. 8gb of Corsair CMZ8GX3M1A1600C10(XMP) or 8gb of Kingston KHX1866C11D3P1K2/8G will be more than enough.

A lot is going to depend on the CPU that you will be using as the memory controller will be the determining factor. With the motherboard you have support for certain speeds of ram at their rated speeds and then you have support for the higher speeds but at an overclocked state.
You will have a better chance of 1600mhz or 1866mhz ram working easier then the higher 2400mhz and 2666mhz at overclocked states.

You will also be better off with a lower amount (8gb) if your main purpose of the computer is gaming, if you are doing video rendering or encoding or any high memory required application then go with the 16gb.
Games will not make use of any amount of memory over 6gb.
If you give us some more info on what your main use is and what the other components are or will be plus your budget we can better help you.

I am using a Intel Core i7-3770K Ivy Bridge, and i want the extra memory because i can. And i do not want to upgrade for a long time. Also i enjoy having multiple web browsing tabs open at the same time. But i really want the extra memory and speed because i can.

The Trident X is the top model for G.Skill so the memory chips are of good quality. In the computer there are things that affect the performance more that others, memory is not very high on that list. Lets say that your using the computer for gaming, the first and most important component is the video card, then comes the CPU, after that it's either the memory or the SSD. If given a choice I will say the SSD would give a better performance upgrade then the ram. If you can get the ram running at a high enough speed the it could add to the performance.

My last upgrade I went with 1866mhz ram and it has given me good gaming performance, I tried overclocking to 2133mhz but found that it wasn't worth the extra MHz so I went back to the 1866mhz and it runs very stable.
One of the ram links I gave you was for 16gb of the Trident X at 1866mhz with low timings 8-9-9-24. The lower the timings the faster the ram. The other 16gb one was with 7-8-7-24 so these two sets are very good.
