It's a decent entry level board, suitable for office applications. If intended for gaming, these are my budget choices:

$185 http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...
$150 http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

Decide what ya need after reading about the chipset differences here:

As for RAM....Corsair Low Profile Vengeance

$42 http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

I agree with JackNaylorPE, these two are great deal for the money, and great quality mobos. I got the V version, runs with no problem.
