For the MOBO - I'd avoid the ECS and Palit boards (just have never had good luck with their products and the Palit MOBO is DDR2 based so that leaves the Intel,MSI aor ASUS boards which are all 3 DDR3 based making the RAM choice the Samsung as it is the only 1 listed that is DDR3 and made for a dual channel setup (the Mushkin is triple channel which means either just using 2 modules or running your system in single channel mode since the E8500 does not support triple channel) - and the A-DATA modules are DDR2 so can not be used with those 3 MOBOs !!

Between those 3 MOBO's it is pretty much a toss up but I personally like the ASUS board but any of the 3 would work well.
