Corsair CMX8GX3M4A1600C9 8GB (4 x 2GB) DDR3 Memory Second best, 1600MHZ, same latencies as the Dominator below, 4 modules.

Corsair CMX8GX3M4B1333C9 8GB (4 x 2GB) DDR3 Memory Third best, 1333MHz, 4 modules.

Corsair CMX8GX3M2A1333C9 8GB (2 x 4 GB) DDR3 Memory Fourth best, 1333MHz, and has 2 modules.

Corsair CMP8GX3M2A1600C9 Dominator 8GB (2 x 4GB) DDR3 Memory Probably the Best. This is the Dominator series, 1600MHz, same latencies as Second best, 2 modules, and has better heatsinks than the first.

Interesting, BUT did ANYONE ask what MOBO to VERIFY that ANY of the RAM is TESTED or CERTIFIED for your MOBO. Otherwise, you at risk: 1. IC incompatibility, 2. Maximum GB/DIMM, 3. Dual vs Tri Channel MOBO, 4. Type DDR2/DDR3 MOBO, 5. Maximum support DIMM Speed per MOBO, 6. Maximum support DIMM Speed per CPU, 7. Use Gaming?.

Guessing versus Knowing - Experienced people ASK! ;)

I mainly use it for Photoshop, Flash, After Effects and 3d studio Max.

CPU Intel Core i5 760
MOBO ASUS P7P55D
GPU ASUS ENGTX460
CPU COOLING Arctic Cooling Freezer 7 Pro Rev.2 CPU Cooler
HDD SAMSUNG HD501LJ (500Gb)
PSU Corsair CMPSU-650HXUK 650W

So, what do you reckon?

ASUS P7P55D
Corsair Tested - http://www.corsair.com/configurator/product_results.asp...
ASUS Certified {QVL} - http://usa.asus.com/product.aspx?P_ID=RBA8CzWoopUlYRFZ

Depending upon how much RAM you need:

CORSAIR DOMINATOR 4GB (2 x 2GB) DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) CMP4GX3M2A1600C9 http://www.amazon.co.uk/Corsair-CMP4GX3M2A1600C9-Domina...

CORSAIR DOMINATOR 8GB (4 x 2GB) DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) CMD8GX3M4A1600C8 http://www.amazon.co.uk/Corsair-CMD8GX3M4A1600C8-SDRAM-...

I have seen this set work on other ASUS P55 MOBO's, but I would STRONGLY encourage you to verify with Corsair { http://www.corsair.com/helpdesk/default.aspx } prior to purchasing; they will reply within 2-3 hours:
CORSAIR DOMINATOR 8GB (2 x 4GB) DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) CMP8GX3M2A1600C9 http://www.amazon.co.uk/Corsair-CMP8GX3M2A1600C9-Domina...

Only if you plan to Overclock:
CORSAIR XMS 8GB (2 x 4GB) DDR3 2000 (PC3 16000) CMX8GX3M2A2000C9 http://www.amazon.co.uk/Corsair-CMX8GX3M2A2000C9-DDR3-D...

Good Luck! :)
