    The build looks good, that is a great motherboard + processor combo, you should consider overclocking, that CPU overclocks very nicely. As far as the RAM goes, you didn't put a price limit so I am assuming it isn't a huge issue. That motherboard supports tripple channel RAM so you want triple channel to take full advantage. 6GB will be enough for almost any applications so here I would suggest:

    G.SKILL PI Series

    It is fast and mid-line expesive.

  3. Thank you for the recommendation on the memory guys. I will follow the advise.
