I'll be building my first computer here shortly, and I'm currently in the process of selecting components. Microcenter currently has a deal going on processor/mobo combos, so I'll be getting unless I'm convinced otherwise:

and

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


My question, is which ram should I get? There seems to be SO many different options, and I don't really see the difference between any of them other than brand name. Maybe that is the only difference? Anyway, based on the mobo/processor I'll be getting, which ram would you recommend?

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

What the heck is the difference between both of those ripjaws options anyway?

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

And the difference between these two options? And should I care about or even want 1866, I don't understand it =\

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

And then other brands of course such as the above.


At the moment, I'm leaning towards

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

Simply because it's on sale.

Help?! Thanks!
