I just bought an AMD Athlon II X4 630 processor and an MSI 880GMA-E45 motherboard. I know the motherboard requires DDR3 RAM, however, I haven't built a computer from scratch in a few years and that was when you had to make sure the RAM matches the speed of the motherboard bus speed. What kind of RAM should I buy for this?

I would go with this 4GB set of RAM, if avaliable in your area or online...

G.SKILL Ripjaws Series 4GB (2 x 2GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) Desktop Memory Model F3-12800CL7D-4GBRM
