Well i am building myself a Brand new PC with following configuration ;

Processor :Intel core i5 3450
Motherboard :Gigabyte GA-Z77MX-D3H
cabinet & PSU : I will buy a cheap one through a dealer . [ 450 watt PSU ]
Optical drive :ASUS DRW-24B1ST [ don't care too much about it ]
Hard disk :Seagate Barracuda 1 TB Desktop Internal Hard Drive (ST31000524AS)

But i am stuck with RAM , I know very little about them ,
i have decided to buy
Corsair Vengeance DDR3 4 GB (1 x 4 GB) PC RAM (CMZ4GX3M1A1600C9) [ ]

Is this RAM Compatible with Gigabyte GA-Z77MX-D3H ,

and please tell me how to check compatibility between ram motherboard .
or please suggest me 4GB RAM [ Corsair Vengeance ,G.Skill , Kingston , Transcend as they are easily available ]

motherboard -Gigabyte GA-Z77MX-D3H : RAM : Vengeance DDR3 4 GB PC RAM (CMZ4GX3M1A1600C9) is this a good combination ,

Fill out the new build form in the new build section of the forum if you want advice, and boy do you need advice.

That's a dual channel mobo, so you need 2 or 4 sticks of ram, not 1.

I would recommend a 2x4GB kit (8GB) as it's frequently going for $25-30 after rebate.

You don't want a cheap 450w psu. You want a quality 80+ psu at least bronze rated. A cheapo 450w psu may only put out 300w and it doesn't have the protection circuits of a quality psu and isn't efficient.

If your not overclocking and not using multiple video cards, you don't need a Z77, you should be looking at a less expensive H77 or B75.
