Depends on the CPU, MOBO and OS.

For SB/LGA 1155 stay away from 1.65v RAM, for AMD 4~6 cores and FX the Ripjaws, and for LGA 1155 the Corsair. Again, it depends. Further, if your OS is 64-bit then none and instead look for a 2x4GB kit if not a 4x4GB.

Q - What MOBO, CPU and OS?
Q - What's the purpose of the Build?

The mobo is H61M-VS
Cpu : I3-2100
OS will be either a 32 or 64 bit (have both of them)

Im building this rig for gaming and watching HD movies and some photoshop :) 

Best solution

The H61 chipset allows only DDR3-1333 and if you edit large Photoshop files then get 4x4GB DDR3-1333 @ 1.50v. If you want to speed things up then look for CAS 8 or 7; lower CAS is faster but the overall difference is minimal. More GB of RAM is best, and I'd look at value DDR3-1333 kits.

>4GB of RAM requires 64-bit OS eg Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit.

I looked up the ASRock H61M-VS it's 2xDIMM so get 2x4GB DDR3-1333. I typically don't look at H61/H67 I know key limits eg no OC.

Thank you for the info.

So you are saying that mobo is crap ? :D 

I choosed it cuz of my tight budget and it fits my budget for 38 Euros.

Haf 912 made me do this decision its 70 Euros :S so i had to get a cheaper mobo.

Should i get a P67 cheapset ?

Nope, if you don't care to OC it's fine and does its' job. If you want to OC then yeah maybe, but you'd need a SB 'K' CPU.

Using the non-K I might look at the H67 more ports/DIMM slots. If your budget is really tight then use every penny on the GPU!

Ok thank you .

I decided to get HD 6850 Sapphire vs 6770/Gtx 550 Ti Asus/Hd 6790

The case that will be avaible for lots of upgrading got that 70 euros.

4Gb Ram are enough for now and if i need more ill buy more later.

The cpu is the top of Dual Cores right now and at a nice price.

Already have Hdd and Dvd.

And the PSU is a XFX Pro Core 550W +20 Euro to get the 750 W.
