I was hoping you guys could help me select the right memory. This is my first build, so I'm not exactly sure what to get. I'm going to be using this as an HTPC as well as light gaming, and I haven't really thought about overclocking, but I don't want to limit myself in the future either. I'm looking to get 4GB for as close to $100 as possible. Advice and recommendations would be greatly appreciated!

I've had excellent luck with G.Skills; they aren't yet specifically recommending for 890 GB boards, but these are all listed for 790T boards, so should have no problems, as the memory controller's on the CPU anyways (and all are 1.5V RAM...):

If you only ever intend to have two DIMMs (4G), this 1600 9-9-9-24 should do: F3-12800CL9D-4GBRL

If you might want to eventually add a pair and go to 8G, in ascending order of performance (and likely, co$t!):
1333 9-9-9-24 F3-10666CL9D-4GBRL
1333 8-8-8-24 F3-10666CL9D-4GBRM
and you might ask 'em about these, to verify that CAS7 is OK:
1333 7-7-7-21 F3-10666CL9D-4GBRH
