Looking for advice on getting memory for this mobo: Asus P8Z77-V PRO Intel Z77

The main purpose for my system is gaming (WoW, BF3, Skyrim, etc...). Any help would be appreciated.

The above recommendation is good however some aftermarket cpu coolers are not compatible with that ram i would go for one of these sets RAM:G.SKILL Sniper 8GB (2 x 4GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) Desktop Memory Model F3-12800CL9D-8GBSR

RAM:CORSAIR Vengeance 8GB (2 x 4GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) Desktop Memory Model CML8GX3M2A1600C9B

Hype 212 evo will get no problem with the first ripjaw. But Noctua NH-D14 will definitely. Depends on what type of cooler OP want to use.

But the vengeance is also my fav and a good one as you suggest:

Personally i would go with vengeance.

Thanks for all your help guys.

I have two questions about memory sticks:

a) Is there a real difference between 1866 and 1600 MHz?
b) Does it really matter if you get low profile vs. the regular ones, with the 'spikes'?

The reason I ask is I've been looking at the Corsair Vengeance 8GB (2x4GB) DDR3 PC3-15000C9 1866MHz Dual Channel Kit (CMZ8GX3M2A1866C9) [CMZ8GX3M2A1866C9] which are priced at £43 and quite similar to the low profile: CML8GX3M2A1600C9B

No it doesn't make a difference between 1866 and 1600 MHz only in benchmarks it does you can not tell otherwise and yes it matters between low profile and high profile depending upon the aftermarket cpu cooler your using

Thanks. Do you recommend the 1866 over the 1600?

No, he didnt, but he said they are same and no need to spend on 1866 speed. For gaming memory speed doesnt fact. All are same. Get the 1600 speed.

I am using ddr2-800, there is no performance loss.
