I recently purchased an Intel e8400 cpu and this Motherboard >

I am so confused here... what RAM should I get? DDR3 pc6400, 8500, 10600, 12800, 14900 or 17000???

I'm looking for at least 4GB of RAM... I'm open for any advice or ideas on what module I should get.

Look for some pc8500 ddr3 used if you can on craigslist. It's 1066 and you should be able to find a pair for $30-50. You can buy the faster 1333 or 1600 if you want; it will run at the slower speed. Stick with crucial, corsair, kingston, or samsung (hynix).

So basically this specific mobo is only compatible with the PC3-8500 or PC3-10600 modules?

That ram should work, when you boot it will run @ 1066 mode, and you would have top go into the BIOS and manually increase the speed, set the timing, and voltage.
