What is the Prefered RAM for the GA-890FXA-UD5 motherboard


I'm going to be attempting my 1st PC build and I have narrowed down all of the components except the RAM. I was hoping someone could recommend some reasonably priced RAM that is compatible with the Gigabyte motherboard. Here is the complete configuration:

Mother board: GA-890FXA-UD5

CPU: AMD Phenom II X6 1090T Black Edition Thuban 3.2GHz

CPU Cooler: Zalman 9700

Video Card: Sapphire HD 6870

Case: Cooler Master HAF932 Full Tower ATX

Power Supply: Corsair 850-TX

Hard Disk Drive: HITACHI Deskstar 7K3000 2TB 7200 RPM 64MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5" Internal Hard Drive

CD/DVD: LG Black 24X DVD & CD Burner

My primary usage would be the following:

1) Adobe applications - CS4 suite (Dreamweaver, Photoshop, Illustrator)
2) Web browsing
3) E-mail
4) Gaming - 1st person shooters

If anyone has any suggestions that don't drastically increase the cost of this build it would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you,

  1. Maybe the i5 2500 or 2500k, i7 2600 and a socket 1155 mobo. For the RAM go to the mobo manufacturer site and look up the mobo and then the memory list in there.
