I want to build a PC fairly soon, but I am undecided about which motherboard to pick. Also I did download both manuals and RAM support guide for the Gigabyte MOBO, but it is hard to find a reasonably priced DDR3 triple-channel. Since I am going to buy these things, MOBO and RAM, "online", I want to make sure about the RAM I should buy for each MOBO. I am more inclined to buy ASUS, by the way.

Here are the two MOBOs:

ASUS Sabertooth X58 LGA 1366 about $200.00

GIGABYTE GA-X58A-UD3R LGA 1366 about $200.00 (it was lowered in price) :bounce: 

I would appreciate any serious comments, and thanks for your help.

Ciao!

So what makes the UD3R better than the ASUS mobo? By the way, the gigabyte mobo was lowered in price. Thanks.

Take a look of this and tell me the difference that u see for the same price.

Gigabyte is a very friendly mobo and OC very well also has Dual Bios that is a feature for avoid kill ur mobo with a bad BIOS update.

So how do I go about selecting RAM? For the gigabyte mobo there is a list of qualify vendors, but whenever I try to find a particular RAM module from this list (amazon or newegg), it is either not found or there is no a triple channel DDR3. I was looking from the list of DDR3 1600, and I fail to find what I want. Can I trust the ones not listed in this list?

These are the DDR3 listed:

Should I trust these modules even if they are not found in the Gigabyte QVL? And thanks.

Yeah, a RAM kit that isn't in the QVL doesn't mean that don't works with the mobo only means that wasn't tested with that mobo.
