Which RAM?

I bought the EXTREME6 Z77 today:

Can someone recommend good RAM? I currently have Crucial 16GB in my MacBookPro so if anyone can let me know the type required for the Motherboard from http://www.crucial.com/uk

Would be appreciated, thanks!

    Max ~£65

    You won't need 16gb unless you're doing some serious video editing. Also, I don't think a Z77 board like the Extreme6 supports quad-channel ram as it is.

    This will work great, and at a cheaper price than any of those.

    Ah right, that saved me wasting time

    Could you pick a good one for ~£30-40?

    No problem, glad to help. As long as you're just gaming, 8gb is more than enough.

    1866 mhz ram isn't gonna offer you that much of an advantage over 1600 mhz, so you can save a little money there, unless you really don't mind paying the extra money.
