I am purchasing the GIGABYTE GA-P55-UD3R for my i5 CPU and I want to know if this RAM is compatible with my motherboard, G.SKILL Ripjaws Series 4GB (2 x 2GB) http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

Yes, it is compatible. I would not recommend it however. Although it is 1600 speed RAM, it has a relatively high/slow CL=9.

I would recommend this G.Skill RAM 1333 @ CL=7 1.5V

Or this if you really want 1600, G.Skill 1600 @ CL=7 1.65V

Either of the above choices would be better. Do not buy RAM for that motherboard that specs more than 1.65V
