I have bought all of my PC parts but when putting it all together I realised I had stupidly bought RAM that is incompatible with my ASrock Pro3 Z77 Motherboard.

Can anybody recommend some RAM in the £30ish area that is 8Gb 1333Mhz-1600Mhz?
The list of compatible RAM sticks is HERE.

My main use for the PC will be gaming so preferably something suited to that use. I have 4 Slots but would like to add 2 more sticks in the future to make in total 16Gb of RAM.

Any help will be much appreciated :)

Ebuyer because they said they will do an exchange with the RAM I bought.

Hi, I would choose 1.5V RAMs from
Corsair: http://www2.corsair.com/configurator/product_results.as...
or
Crucial: http://www.crucial.com/store/listparts.aspx?model=Z77%2...
or
GSkill: http://www.gskill.com/configurator2.php?pid=2&model=160...
Depending on the CPU heatsink, you might need low profile RAMs.


Ok thank you, at the moment I just have the stock intel Heatsink installed and its awful, but I will hopefully be upgrading to a better CPU fan and heatsink around christmas, any recommendations?
