The process normally goes like this if you dont know what works with what. Find the cpu you want and discover what socket it has. Lets say you want the core-i7 920, look under the specifications of that cpu and you will find it has socket 1366.
Now you look for a motherboard, sorting out first that its an intel motherboard, then sort by socket 1366 and find a mobo you want.
Now looking at the motherboard specifications it will tell you what ram is compatible with it.
6 x DIMM, Max. 24 GB, DDR3 2000(O.C.)*/1866(O.C.)*/1800(O.C.)*/1600(O.C.)/1333/1066 Non-ECC,Un-buffered Memory
Triple channel memory architecture

So now you look for ram sorting that its ddr3 in triple channel config. i.e. 3x2gb or 3x1gb (that is 3 sticks of ram, each stick being 2gb or 1gb)
