This is my first build and im having difficulty figuring out compatible ram with this specific board. This is the motherboard (msi z87-g45 gaming)

http://www.tigerdirect.ca/applications/SearchTools/item...

in the specs it says it supports 2400, 2600, 2800, 3000mhz. im used to seeing 1333,1600 etc. Can someone explain the specs to me?

It supports all the memory you're used to seeing (i.e. 1333, 1600), it's just not listed on Tiger. Check out Newegg's specs:

Memory Standard supported by your board

DDR3 3000(OC)/2800(OC)/2600(OC)/2200(OC)/2133(OC)/1866(OC)/1600/1333/1066

Most builders go with the DDR3 1600mhz.

You can unselect the solution and give it to Blackbird. It's not a final selection.
