Asus Maximus III Gene what memory to buy?

Hi Everyone

I will be buying a Asus Maximus III Gene motherboard.. with a i7 2600K cpu.
Mostly using it for gaming.

I need help deciding what memory is the best bang for the buck...

Does Cas Latency and timing make a big difference?

I look forward in hearing your suggentions!!!

  1. Just pointing this out....

    The Maximus III Gene MB is an LGA 1156 motherboard. 1st Gen i-series processor
    The i7 2600k is an LGA 1155 CPU. 2nd Gen i-series processor.

    Your CPU will not work with your Motherboard.
  2. For RAM, these are pretty popular, high performance RAM

    8GB is plenty for anything you will be doing, but if you want more you can always get a second set, RAM has gotten very inexpensive.
  3. I am sorry, my mistake I was looking at the ASUS Maximus IV Gene-Z LGA 1155 Intel Z68 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 Micro ATX Intel Motherboard

    and I am not sure what memory is best..

    You won't get memory with CAS Latency 7? is it not worth it?
  4. the lower timing RAM are definitely better, but they are very expensive. You can spend the extra money, but you won't have a noticeable difference.
