Hello everyone :hello:  I'm building a new gaming PC and need a little help finding the best ram I can possibly buy. I'm mainly looking for ddr3 1600 (2 x 4GB) 240 pin desk top memory but if you think I can go with something better that works with my build then let me know. I don't exactly have a budget for ram but not to much. Thanks!

A good build.
I suggest a G.skil ares low profile kit: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

I leave it to you as an exercise to go to the G.skil ram selection app, and enter your motherboard.
Verify that the ram I picked is indeed supported.
If you should ever have a problem, you want supported ram.

With sandy and ivy bridge, there is little benefit from ram faster than 1600.
