1) If you are thinking about buying a i7 9xx, then go for 3 memory modules pack (3 x 1Gb or 3 x2Gb) if you want to run them trichannel. Gskill and Corsair are very good brands.
2) The GIGABYTE GA-X58A-UD3R is a great choice. It's newer (it has SATA 6Gbps and USB 3.0 support) and the value/performance ratio is very difficult to be beaten. High Quality Construction, Tri-SLI and CrossFireX capable and overclocks very well.
As an alternative, take a look at the ASUS P6X58D-E. Its performance is superb and the price is not too high.

Here you have an interesting article about this matter from this site:

ya i was thinking that one also the only thing that sucks about it is ram speed is 1333 or 2200 and newegg only has 2000 or 1333 for the 3 packs but i guess thats cool i picked out. good performance and price.

i saw on all the 3 packs x58 and i7 what makes them better than the 2 packs for that processor or does it just like them better.

Those 3 really have little in common.

This is the best choice to my mind unless you are seriously into tweaking overclocks.

You have combined twin memory module son a triple channel board.

1366 wants 3 modules
1156 wants two modules

If your OC target is 4.0 - 4.2 Ghz, I'd get DDR3-1600, lowest CAS you can afford.

CAS 6 $234 http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

CAS 7 $199 http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... or
CAS 7 $199 http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

I wouldn't bother with CAS 8 and 9

Also search the THG sample builds on the home page which show some modules which perform better than you'd expect by reading their labels. Avid modules with tall heat spreaders which can interfere with the placement of your CPU cooler.

Everything above 1333Mhz is overclocking. I will try to explain it.
Gigabyte tells you that you can use 800, 1066 and 1333Mhz memory (specification), and, on the other hand, Gigabyte garantees you that even a DDR3-2200Mhz memory will work due to the features of the mobo.
So, don't worry, you can use 800, 1066, 1333, 1600, 1866, 2000, 2133 and 2200Mhz memory modules.
