Looking for RAM on new build

Hey guys just picked up a msi Z77A-G41 mobo and a intel i5-3570K 3.40 GHz, 6MB cache processor. Question being what's the best ram to run?
The mobo 4DIMMs support for DDR3-1066/ 1333/ 1600/ 1866(OC)/ 2133(OC)/ 2200*/ 2400*/ 2667*/ 2800* MHz(OC, 22nm CPU required) up to 32GB max

What's the best MHz to run and how much should I run? Also recommend a main power supply for this unit. I don't mind spending a good bit of cash for a nice running machine

  2. Are you planning to OC? This will help on a DRAM suggestion - also what GPU are running or are you just going to run the CPUs on board graphics

    Well more than likely I will need to look into a decent gpu since I'll be running my ol 27" screen but I doubt il OC this machine I'm planning on building a all out gaming machine just not any time soon so I would this one to be able to handle anything I throw at it for the time being... So I still need to find a good PSU, GPU and RAM. Combo, I havnt build a machine in about 5 yrs so I have been out of the loop for some time now and idk the best combos anymore

    Get at least 600W psu .It is enough even for GTX 770. For video card R9 270 ,GTX 760 or faster.
  5. For gaming 8GB is enough for most, look to a 2x4GB set in 1866 or 1600 if no plans to OC, with your mobo and CPU would look at pron the GSkill RipJaws X in 1600/8 or ( or their Snipers, both are great sets for your rig
